I need to transfer a large save file between two IBM i machines. These are
sitting on the same subnet but one of them is really old and with an older
version of the OS as well.

Large in this case means 75 gigabytes.

So – how to do it?

It's a relatively simple matter to chop up IFS stream files into
smaller chunks, transfer them, and then stitch them back together on
the other side.

So if the save file can be copied to a stream file (with CPY?
CPYTOSTMF?), then you should be fine. (Perhaps even better would be
accessing the save file directly *as* a stream file, but I am not sure
if that is possible. I know that technically QSYS.LIB is "within" the
IFS, but I also know that QSYS.LIB is special.)

Which versions of the OS are we talking about?
