How to resume failed scp transfer

root's picture

You must know that scp do not have resume option but you can turn to rsync for this.

So, if the scp transfer failed:
# scp file_to_transfer lame@remotehost:/path/

You can resume with rsync like this:
# rsync --partial file_to_transfer lame@remotehost:/path/file_to_transfer
