I have the MBWE connected to my Linux laptop via a crossover cable. I am able to connect to it using ssh and copy files
with scp. My problem is that the transfer speeds are S-L-O-W. I'm getting ~600KB/s via scp, which means 2GB/hour.
At that rate it will take 500 hours to fill the drive - over 3 weeks!
I have stop several services (mionet / lightworld / cron) to try to free up memory, it hasn't made a dent.
Any suggestions? I'd be satisfied with 5MB/s!
p.s. I should mention that the laptop is not connected to any network - it's a standalone system. So the problem is not caused
by other network activity.
