i had the same problem and if i used a "server" to save the images and
use udp-sender with lzop or gzip, i got allways a timeout and the copy
fails. The performace with gzip was worst and with lzop much better,

My main problem is, that it is actually impossibile, to save images on a
server and copy them on a machine. I am still searching for a
solution. :-(

I used a Pentium IV 2,4 with 1 GB RAM in the server and fast S-ATA
