Last few days I was trying to download large database dump on my new mac book pro over a ssh connection. But as soon as the computer goes to sleep it breaks the file transfer. And, I am still figuring out how mac settings work :-(
After few broken attempts finally found a way to resume from the last broken file download process stage.
Last attempt had "31% 2304MB 0.0KB/s - stalled" and when I used the resume command it reached to 81% in no time and then continued with usual speed.
Thanks a lot to joen.dk & yyab.wp.com for the command.
Command to resume an scp transfer, try with rsync:
rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh user@host:remote_file local_file
rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh [email protected]:/home/dltr/rt464867/db.sql.gz ./
