Allow 'none' cipher in SFTP?

Would it be difficult to allow SFTP connections using 'none' cipher? I think it would be very useful in local area backups.

In my case, I use SFTP as a backend to have access to "md5" and be able to use '--track-renames', but encryption slows down the process unnecessarily.

If I'm not mistaken, ssh/cipher.go allows the 'none' cipher.


Hi vicmarto,

Don't know, but may be possible with --sftp-ciphers=none, did you try that?
