When I attempted to copy a file (of size, ) over the network using scp I get a error
Why does this happen? How do I resolve it?
This happens because
For example, you might want to limit the bandwidth to 1 MB/s (= 8192 Kbits/s):
Any chance you're behind a Cisco ASA firewall? If so, turn off "sequence number randomization" and that'll help a lot -- also disable TCP Offload (ethtool -K $INTERFACE tso off gso off gro off) if you're on a Cisco ASA with Broadcom NICs in your server.
