Compression property

Determines the level of compression used.


An Integer value


  • Basic
object.Compression [= value]  
The Compression(object,value) syntax has these parts:
objectAn expression evaluating to an object of type wodTunnel.
valueAn Integer value.


Before connecting to an SSH server, you can decide if you want to use wodSSHTunnel's internal compression. If so, you should set the Compression property to any value between 1 and 9 (1 for minimum compression, 9 for maximum compression). If you don't want compression to be used at all, set this parameter to 0.

Typically, SSH clients use compression level 6 for optimum performance.
