You use whichever IP v6 address you have assigned to your server.
No. This rule allows INCOMING packets which have destination port 22. When you establish outgoing connection to remote port 22, your local port is selected randomly. You should have rule -A INPUT -m state --state RELATED,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT otherwise remote server's answers can not reach your server.
If all 17 addresses are assigned and configured, any of them (or all of them) will work. The key is that the address is working on the server
You have altered ssh_config with options that should only be used in sshd_config (mind the d). The file it keeps complaining about is the configuration for the SSH client and seems to be originating from the source server not the target server.
You can't just randomly assigned an IP address from somewhere else to your server and hope it'll work (well, you can, but your hope will be in vain). In order for a packet assigned to that IP to reach your server, some routing configuration needs to be done. Your options are: Have a machine in the UK behind the router where the network thinks your IP is, ...
Unless you have bought the address from OVH and they told you that you would be able to use it for the server in France (which is extremely unlikely), this will not work. In general, IP addresses, unlike domain names, are bound to physical networks and you can't just randomly assign an address to some host in a totally different network. Please read up ...
The Short Answer There is a file which has been changed since the last time you attempted to reach the SSH server running on that host. That file is /Users/whateveryourusernameis/.ssh/known_hosts Somewhere in that file is an entry, one line only, beginning with the host you tried to reach in brackets like [vpsXXX.ovh.net]. If you are certain that the ...
When you say "mainly 15Mb tarballs", how many smaller files are there? Do you see the slow rate constantly or does it look faster on the larger files? rsync (and almost any other filesystem operation) is slower at processing many small files rather than fewer large ones due to the filesystem overhead of opening and closing each file (and any directory read/...
You have to use address which is configured on your server interface. No another limit, it behaves same as IPv4.
