Do you a firewall in between the hosts?
This seems to be a high throughput behaviour.
We had the same problem and took us some time to identify that the firewall is blocking the traffic after some time.
What MTU size did you try? Is it the same on both hosts?
Even with the RHEL firewall completely disabled, it has the same upper limit. SCP between the Solaris systems, with ipfilter running on both systems and both systems on completely different networks, is not a problem. Between Solaris and RHEL, same network but different subnet, RHEL with no firewall running (only while troubleshooting this, don't panic), still a problem. Using PuTTY SFTP from/to any of the systems is fine, even though on different networks. The mtu on the RHEL was the same as the Solaris systems (1500) - changing values on the RHEL increased the upper limit but still hit a ceiling. Only have one RHEL system so I can't see whether RHEL-RHEL transfers are affected, only those between Solaris, PuTTY on Windows, and the one RHEL system.
