Transfer 1 file with ssh

cat filein | ssh destination.com -c arcfour,blowfish-cbc -C -p 50005 "cat - > /tmp/fileout"
Where filein is the source file, destination.com is the ssh server im copying the file to, -c arcfour,blowfish-cbc is selecting the fastest encryption engines, -C is for online compressions and decompression when it comes off the line - supposed to speed up tx in some cases, then the /tmp/fileout is how the file is saved... I talk more about it on my site, where there is more room to talk about this: http://www.kossboss.com/linuxtarpvncssh and http://www.kossboss.com/linux---transfer-1-file-with-ssh
