I have some fairly large file transfers going across the atlantic every morning by ftp. From time to time the transfers will be distrupted, likely due connectivity issues, and the files will be left in an incomplete state.
I'm wondering if there is a better way to handle these file transfers. Would say, rsync or scp be more resilient to periodic loss of connectivity? The best would be if the transfer would reconnect and continue where it left off, should it be disrupted.
Large in this case means files up to several GiB and transfers spanning several hours.
