    • Release Notes Summary:
      Hide
      When transferring files to a Windows host, Bolt may optionally use the SMB protocol instead of using WinRM, for a significant reduction in transfer time. A user must either have Administrative rights to use an Administrative share like \\host\C$ or must use UNC style paths to access existing shares like \\host\share. Note that SMB file transfers can only be used in conjunction with winrm connections over HTTP, not HTTPS. SMB 3 (which supports encryption) is not yet supported.

      Description

      Copying files over WinRM is slow because it breaks the data into 8K chunks, compresses each chunk and puts that in a SOAP/XML message. To transfer larger amounts of data, it might be worth using SMB directly. Rapid7 (aka metasploit) is working on a pure ruby SMB gem that supports SMB and SMBv2: https://github.com/rapid7/ruby_smb.
