I love winssh to transfer files from my windoz box to my linux box.  

The problem is that my linux box will prioritise the sshd over my surfing and we know that is not right :)

I tried:         renice -n 5 -p 1734

The pid was taken from the ps -ef command so I feel sure I wam pointing to the correct process.  

1)  How do I renice this if I want to push back the priority after it starts.
2) who do I nice this if I want to make this a "non issue" in the future ?

Thank you all

Also part of this is for my own information.  I can just move the speed slider to the left on the windows client but that is not the way they would ask for it to be done in an interview !
