I'm trying to scp a large file (9 gig) from a Sun server, OS Solaris 8 to a Sun Ultra 5 using OpenSSH_3.7.1. The file
transfer always hangs at or around 3 gig. I know this is an older version of OpenSSH and this may have been resolved in a
later version. But if there is someone who knows how to correct this without upgrading, I'd really appreciate your
assistance. I cannot upgrade the servers at this time because these are production servers. Thanks in advance.
For a (semi-)quick fix use split to cut the file into 2G pieces &
transfer those . Hth , JimL
