I appreciate all the ideas (rsync, etc). For Richard's question, it's more of a app processing
for a sister corp scenario. The file names and number files will change with the workflow.
We are basically the only System i in a mix of systems, some Win, some Unix. Ftp is my preference
and have a good amount of automated code for it. We are still at a stage of throwing ideas on the
table to discuss.
Thanks to all
Jim Franz

Why are you copying Content Manager docs to a remote site ?

trading partner, customer, redundancy, etc ?

Depending on the specifics and if they are 1-way transfers I would probably use FTP.

Netbios and NFS traffic are not very efficient over WAN connectivity in my opinion.

Is NFS suitable for batch copying many files to a drive on a Win system across wan (many states away),

or is it more for accessing files on other servers and use ftp for batch transfers like this?
Hundreds of files in the 1-20 meg range size. ?These are .tif and .pdf from Content Manager, stored in ifs.
