Don't understand howto use mirrordir or rdiff-backup with ssh


I need to copy several gigabytes from one Ubuntu server to one Debian server on the same local net. I've tried to use scp but it always fails after a while. It seems to fail on files with spaces in filenames sometimes. The source server disk is readonly so I can't rename those files either.

I therefore tried other methods as mirrordir and rdiff-backup, to be able to copy all these data I have, but I can't figure out how to be able to copy from one server to a remote server using ssh.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
