View Full Version : Copying of big files via ssh failed

11th May 2006, 02:26 PM
hi all,

I have a problem to copy a big ISO file (4.5 GB) from a windows box to a linux machine.

i tried copying with cygwin and dos shell (putty scp) and get a 450MB-big file on the other side without any warnings as if everything were ok. :(

the file is correct and can be opened in windows.

anyone had such problem before? any ideas?

thank you in advance :)

Get the newest version of SCP. They had a bug that was fixed in the new version.

thanx zivot_je_hra,

I noticed I was using cygwin and tried to move this big file to another directory from which to copy to a linux box.

I think there is a bug in cygwin... :)

thank you again!
