I think you have misunderstood the thread - ssh does not affect the
bandwidth required.

As I wrote previously:

Write to the group and tell us exactly what you mean by the phrase
"existing bandwidth is creating some issues while checking out code".
1. what is the command to check out code
2. what is the size of the resulting sandbox
3. what files are you checking out (largest file size, average file
size, number of files, type of files)
4. what is your server, what is your client (cvs versions and also os
5. how often do you run the "checkout" command?
6. how long does it take (elapsed time) to run the "checkout" command

I've previously seen issues where users complain of "slow checkout" over
WAN links only to find they have a 4GB sandbox, and 50 developers who
delete it on Friday night and all expect to "checkout" at 8am  on Monday
morning.  This is a process issue not an issue for the tool (ie: if you
modify what you do slightly, like use "update" instead of "checkout" or
use network compression then there is no need for tool/technology
