It depends on what you are trying to do.
What are you trying to do? File sharing? Uploading? Remote shell? X11 Forwarding?
Please elaborate.

How remote? Is it the local LAN?

Basically FTP will be faster no matter what, if you are only trying to trasfer a file to another computer.

FTP stands for file transfer protocol

SSH stands for secure shell (note the security)

Security is great, but it slows down the transaction, very slightly probably not even noticeable.

Welcome to The Scripts combas! Thanks for your response.
I agree entirely with your accurate summary of FTP and SSH, however, in addressing the second part of the question, there are a lot of other, quicker alternatives.
Samba can be used if the computers are on the same network. AFP is another protocol which is quicker than FTP. And if you want to get into really quick-and-dirty solutions, piping files through nc is going to be the quickest, dirtiest technique of all.

No its not the local LAN.

You can use Secured FTP (SFTP ) instead of FTP.it is available in the net and you can download it. Some packadges include both SSH and SFTP.

With my regards

The answer is: both :) Use FTP to upload a Zip and SSH to unzip it there. If you don't have ssh connectivity you may use ZipDeploy.

Hi, Using PyQt I got a QListView with about 800 entries now (but its intended to be scalable up to about 3000). The first column contains numerical data. Now Qt does the sorting all by its self and quite fast enough. By default it sorts alphanumerically, i.e. 1 10 100 101 110 111 2 ... Solutions on the web suggested left padding the digits with white spaces which didn't work for me.

The stdint.h header definition mentions five integer categories, 1) exact width, eg., int32_t 2) at least as wide as, eg., int_least32_t 3) as fast as possible but at least as wide as, eg., int_fast32_t 4) integer capable of holding a pointer, intptr_t 5) widest integer in the implementation, intmax_t Is there a valid motivation for having both int_least and int_fast?

If I'm not completely mistaken, the only reason why std::list::size() may be (and usually is) a linear-time operation is because they want std::list::splice() to be a constant-time operation, and if you execute the latter, the size of the resulting lists cannot be known without explicitly counting the sizes of the new lists. I was thinking: What if size() was an O(n) operation only *after* a splice() operation has been performed (and...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not.
