Re: copying a 12GB file

how can I copy a 12GB file at reasonable speed over a 1000Mbit ethernet connection from one computer (mailserver) to another (SAMBA file server or my workstation) without going to lengths like installing an FTP server or the like on the mailserver?

File size limit is 2GB with smbmount; NFS will take about 14 hours(!) because copying fails after about 1--2 GB with an I/O error unless using sync mode.

Why does it fail? You have some sort of hardware problem, presumably.

Is splitting the file up into pieces, and doing MD5 and SHA1 sums
on the pieces out of the question? And what's wrong with FTP?

I can explain it for you, but I can't understand it for you.
I speak only for myself, and I am unanimous in that!
