Downloading files from SSH over an unstable connection
As mentioned earlier I am doing a lot of traveling at the moment, which means that I am mostly on a mobile connection.
I needed to download a 100Mb file from my Linux server, and with scp the download would fail.
Instead I am now using this rsync command that would resume if the connection drops:
rsync –partial –progress –rsh=ssh firstname.lastname@example.org:filename.exe filename.exe
Also, if you are using SSH on a slow connection, typing things make lag, you can use this command:
rlwrap -a ssh user@address
