There is such a cipher, but netcat will be a much much faster way to do
what you want.
google 'netcat tar' for many examples.
not really resumable, so you may need to rsync it afterwards, but
perfect for that first bulk speedy transfer

Is it possible to have a "null" cipher for ssh/scp?
On occasion I'm on my LAN, behind a firewall/router etc, and need to
copy a few hundred megs or gigs between boxes.
In this environment, I simply want maximum xfer rate, and minimum CPU
use. I simply want to copy the files across, and have no desire to hide
them, and have no one that I'm aware of on my LAN who would sniff them
So I imagine there should be a "-c null" option to scp. But there does
not seem to be.
So the next question, which cipher has the lowest CPU overhead? DES?
