Topic "Start Upload on filepart - Proxying an upload via laptop"

Author Message

I often run into this scenario - two VPNs, large files that need transferred between the two, limited bandwidth on the upload one way, if not both.

Can I start uploading a file(filepart) to the 2nd network? Specifically streaming would work as well, but i would definitely want to write the filepart as a fallback for resuming if the connection breaks.

Can I do this now with WinSCP or other tool?

Thank you,

Tim Kessler


I meant, can I start uploading to network 2 as soon as I start downloading from network 1. Sorry, it's been a long night of watching file transfer progress.

I wouldn't recommend that in general.

Right, direct is preferred. However, there are some issues with direct transfers. Most important, there is often not an external transfer point available for upload access.
