Sending large files across the web
Posted on 2013-12-31
I have to move some large (7GB) files from my machine to another across the web.
I set up logmein Hamachi's software VPN service and can view the other machine's share at \\farmachine\share and using beyond compare, a great program to compare 2 directories and they got copied.
Trying with another file and it fails with 'the specified network name is no longer available. after minuites or hours and I have to start over.
I have been pinging the remote machine (ping farmachine -t ) and there's NO dropped packets.
Can anyone recommend a simple way to move a large file across effectively a LAN, but WAN if you want to be picky, and would pick up where it left off if the connection fails for some reason?
