I'm using smbclient to transfer a set of large files (80GB) nightly from a Linux system to a Windows share. Lately, for whatever reason, I've been getting I/O timeouts:
cli_push returned NT_STATUS_IO_TIMEOUT
which causes the active file transfer to be aborted and deleted from the Windows share.
This may be due to unresolved Samba bug 8498 (or maybe not). The Windows system is not under my control, so I can't install an ssh server (to use scp or sftp), and do not want to depend on Microsoft's implementation of NFS.
Is there another simple, standard alternative that would let me move 80GB of data reliably from Linux to Windows over the network on a regular basis (the network is GB ethernet, so bandwidth isn't a problem)?
