Nautilus: how to configure a cipher for the sftp protocol?
How can one configure the cipher that is used by the sftp protocol from within the Nautilus file manager?
I've got a hunch that Nautilus does not use the /etc/ssh/ssh_config file or uses SSH protocol version 1, because file transfers with scp (protocol version 2 with default as well as explicit configurations of the "aes-ctr" cipher) go much faster than the same transfer over sftp from within Nautilus.
Judging from the actual speed, it looks like Nautilus uses the "des" cipher, which turns out to be the default cipher for ssh protocol version 1 and is insecure nowadays.
Do you know how to configure the cipher to use by sftp from within the Nautilus file manager?
To fail to prepare is to prepare to fail.
