When transfering large files between computers over wan, what has the best balance with performance and ease of setup?
Im using rsync right now and there seems to be a large overhead when transfering through ssh.

    Rsync is the second best option for all your file transfer needs. The best option depends on your specific use case.

      Not very specific. nc has the lowest overhead and very low setup time, but zero features and restricted to a single channel.
