    One end stalled?


    When the transmittion between two PC connected by a cross cable is going on, one end of the connection report the following:

    root@likunlun-desktop:~# scp ./kbs root@192.168.5.204:/home/liklstar
    root@192.168.5.204's password:
    kbs 33% 2112KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -
    kbs 33% 2112KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -
    kbs 33% 2112KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -
    kbs 33% 2112KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -
    kbs 33% 2112KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -
    kbs 33% 2112KB 0.0KB/s - stalled -


    what does this message mean? Why does this end stalled?
    Notes: the other end runs my writed network device driver!

    liklstar,
    "stalled" means the rate of transfer is near zero bytes per second.

    Re: stalled

    Are we talking serial links? Possible handshake issues? If your transfer protocol allows for software handshakes, you may be adble to disable the hardware handshakes.

    Another possibility is to link the computers to a router (if they aren't already) and use a FTP/SFTP client/server. You may have to enable SSH and open your firewall. You may also have to tweak the router to allow the protocols, though I didn't.

    I have windows and linux machines on my router, and this works very well for me. I enabled SFTP and opened the firewall on the linux box to SSH, and ran winscp on the PC. Then initiate transfers from the windows box.

    With 2 linux boxes, use sftp command line client if you can't find a GUI version.
