I'm try to transfer a large (1GB+) file from one machine to another, but I have to tunnel through a gateway in between. I'm able to transfer small files just fine. However, with the big file, the transfer stalls mid-way through.
After reading a blog post on the stalling scp transfers, I tried using
-l 8192 and even tried lowering it to
-l 2000, but that just seemed to make it stall sooner:
scp -l 2000 -v -P 2222 username@localhost:/path/to/file.gz .
From the verbose output (
-v) of the scp command, it look like the
-l isn't getting passed on…
debug1: Sending command: scp -v -f -- /path/to/file.gz
Any other ideas?
