sftp sources?



hello there,

i am trying to convert a bunch of friends to using Debian GNU/Linux as
opposed to the unmaintained Redhat... a major selling point being the
constant maintenance and security updates by FTP and HTTP.

unfortunately all of the would-be-converts are in a university network
which has bandwidth allocation caps on FTP and HTTP. for example: a
typical FTP download (to a machine 5 miles away) goes at ~2K/s, even
when the undergrads have all gone home and are not clogging the
resources, whereas an scp (across a hemisphere and a timezone) goes
~200K/s. the good news being that port 22 is not capped: i was wondering
if there were SFTP sources equivalent to the FTP lists? (or any other
non ftp/http methods which may solve this problem)

cheers,
Sam
