I used ssh over slow lines, so compression can help in such
situations. Native UNIX ssh client have this possibility.
-C Requests compression of all data (including stdin, stdout,
stderr, and data for forwarded X11 and TCP/IP connections). The
compression algorithm is the same used by gzip(1), and the
``level'' can be controlled by the CompressionLevel option. Com-
pression is desirable on modem lines and other slow connections,
but will only slow down things on fast networks. The default
value can be set on a host-by-host basis in the configuration
files; see the Compression option.
I think it's very frequently asked feature for ppls used
PuTTY over dialup connections.
