HPN-SSH Survey
HPN-SSH is a series of patches for OpenSSH to improve performance on high speed networks. As we've recently received a grant from the National Science Foundation to improve HPN-SSH we are hoping that you will be interested in providing our development team with guidance and suggestions. Our hope is that your input will help us understand the needs of the community and allow us to better prioritize our efforts.
