    We do alot of backups on our systems and would like to move one copy accross the network every now and then. It seems that if a .tar or .pax file is more than 2 gigs it wont download.

    Does anyone move files 2 gigs or larger accross their local network (unix to unix) ?. Whats the best utility or ftp client to do this ?

    thanks.

    Well we have moved files that were much much larger than 2Gigs. We have moved our complete server backup (they were 8 servers) from EV1 to our new DC at them time of huricane hitting USA. Each backup was about 14 Gigs and we have moved it with scp command :

    scp -r <backup.file.tar> root@hostname:~

    If you are not able to move them than thats Network problems between the servers.

    rsync should be able to do that, if it bombs then it will resume the transfer for you from where it left off.

    Thanks, I used rsync years ago but abandoned it when i didnt see a need anymore. I just installed v.2.6.6 on a few servers, did the conf and secrets file and then pulled lots of tar and pax backups accross the net in very good time. I am going to automate the whole thing and have it do it at night.

    :D
