I have a problem since my FTP arccounts are 250MB and 150MB in quota. It
will need to be done in chucks which becomes impractical for a weekly
It is sometimes frustrating that something so simple as file transfer from
Window$ to Linux and vice versa is harder than 'scp'. It seems to me like a
program of this kind should be no more than hundreds of lines of C. Just
open all files recursively, open the port and send packets.
I will try the suggestion you have _all_ given me. Thank you.
