scp stalled when I'm copying 40 meg file on server

just trying to copy 40 meg file on droplet it goes ok for about 30 seconds and then session is stalled and stays like that forever.

Initial speed is dropping from 2.1 MB/s to 0.0KB/s and until it gets there

6% 2688KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -

on other occasion

12% 5504KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -

can you think of reason why would that happen

this is command i’m using scp <file name> root@<server ip>:/root

Hello Kamal, apparently the solution you suggested did not work for me. I was facing the same problem as OP.
