Thumbs up Schedule Automated File Transfers


Is there a built in linux function that would help me send large file transfers using a schedule / automated file transfer method. I'd like to combine this feature with a hot folder / shared folder so I can transfer files automaticallly when someone uploads a file to that folder. Cheers for any advice.

Well, there's 'cron' which is time based scheduler.
Various 'copy' cmds eg for inter-system, use scp with ssh-keys (instead of passwds).

There is also rsync which can run on top of ssh for encrypted send.

You could use https://techarena51.com/index.php/in...tools-example/

If you want to transfer if someone upload a file or basically you want to transfer new files, then you need to monitor the folder via Cron and set a script or any program to check for any new files then do what is necessary.
