I have to transfer 33gb (oracle dmp file) from one network box to another and it takes an extremely long time. So far I was able to transfer 19Gb that took more than 8 hours.
I'm trying to execute script that run by the .bat file. In the forum I found that SFTP takes speed Generally slowest (encryption and necessity to wait for packet confirmations).
Are there any way to improve transfer performance? We are using 4.2.7(Build 758) version. In order to keep script running after the initialization I added -timeout=900 parameter

Following is the script example which is executed from the "host_server":
option batch on
open user:password@ipaddress -timeout=900
get 33GB_FILE.DMP "\\host_server\d$\Data\33GB_FILE.DMP"

I cannot suggest more than what is in the FAQ already.
