I have a question, i built libssh2 with zlib support. Does that mean
that scp and sftp functions will automatically uses zlib compression
by default or should I inform libssh2 to use zlib by calling a special
function from library ? also an other question because I figured that
sftp is slow and haven't seen any optimization in delay the transfer
of files takes from local computer to server. Is there any think can
be done to speed up sftp transfers ? probably something like
activating keep alive ?

Thank you for reading.
