Well, typical programs for transferring files between hosts include: scp, rsync, ftp, fsp, rcp... AFAIK all of these except fsp typically run over TCP, fsp being a UDP-based thingy. None of these are new. Did you mean one of these?

Rsync is very clever about what it transfers, and in some use cases can be super-fast compared to solutions based on more traditional methods.

To expand, the key difference with rsync is that it figures out the differences between the src and tgt files and only sends enough data to 'update' the tgt.
The others send the whole file (err don't know fsp..)
BTW, another 'whole file' option is sftp.

ah, sftp, of course! I should have included that in my list.

fsp is very similar to ftp in use. It think it's more or less the same thing but on UDP rather than TCP, at least that's the impression I have from dim memories of using it once or twice in about 1995.
