    [solved] SSH compression

    I've been trying to find something on this for a bit now, but haven't gotten anything.

    Basically, my question is, is there some way to compress SSH data? By this, I mean similar to memcache for PHP, for example. I'm basically looking for a way for SSH to reduce bandwidth while not putting bandwidth restrictions on SSH itself. I'm not sure if I've made myself clear or not, so if not, please let me know and I'll clarify further.

    ssh -c

    man ssh

    Sadly there is no compression setting (not -c or -C), at least for the SSH server I have on my server. Instead, reading through man 5 sshd_config there's an option, Compression (default: delayed), that uses compression after successful authentication (it can also be set to "yes" or "no"). Regardless, problem solved.
