Uploading Large DVD


Hello,

This is kind of important. I've heard that uploading a large DVD (the folders in the DVD) through FTP won't work because the connection will be reset by the server if it's open for too long.

Is this true? If it is, what other methods for uploading a file this big? How do 4+GB DVD iso's get uploaded to mirrors using rsync?

I've heard of JUpload but I need to get this done in a hurry and no time for programming.

Only other option would be using a courier, but that's expensive.


Thanks in advance,
vxc

Have you tried using the fish command? Basically you type in the address bar of your filemanager the following: fish://username@hostname or ip If successful you will be presented with a login dialog to input your password, again if successful you will have access to the filesystem.

Ummm, the only program I could find called fish is friendly interactive shell. Unless there's another fish program out there.

BTW, the FTP transfer failed.
Creating an ISO of the DVD, ripping the DVD (don't worry it's a home made DVD) won't work cause the user who has the DVD isn't that technically sound.

I'm still looking for some other way to get this file transferred, though it's starting to look like Jupload will be my only choice.

Any ideas appreciated.

Oh the file manager! Sorry, when you said command I assumed it was a program. Yeah this seems to work for me though the person trying to send the file is a Windows user.
