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.
I have tried using regular FTP and this fails – apparently due to the file size. And yes: I have adjusted the time parameters in the FTP script to their maximum values.
I tried the option in RDI to copy the file from machine a to machine b. It seems to be working but at a very pedestrian pace. With my math it seems as if it could possibly be completed in about a week or so – provided that the VPN does not falter or any other abrupt drop of connection happens.
I thought that it might be possible to download to my local PC and then as a next step upload from there to target machine. Alas the ftp client on my laptop simply refused to deal with files of this size.
So – how to do it?
Oh – just to be sure I tested the FTP with sending a much smaller save file
over (only a hundreg megabytes or so). Worked just fine.
