There is a patch to OpenSSH to fix the buffer size problem caused by
the different operating systems OpenSSH runs on.  When the host and
remote are different operating systems the send/receive buffer sizes
do not match and this causes drastic slow down. Like in using Winscp
client connecting to a FreeBSD box or Linux box.


contains the patch code to fix this problem in sshd/ssh.

Subject: ssh session hangs when term is flooded with text.

When I log into any FreeBSD box through the VPN (IPsec site-to-site)
my ssh session will eventually hang when a large amount of text/data
is displayed, for example compiler output, running top, running
or lynx, etc. Obviously this is a networking problem but I'm not
where to start.
