comment How to copy symlinks as symlinks from one machine to another?
@user1779617 I'm assuming you mean "client" (slave) and "server" (master). sftp will traverse subdirectories with the -r switch, but not follow symlinks, as it abstracts filesystems. sftp supports creating symlinks on the host. You should at least try downloading just the symlink (when the symlink is ~/etc -> /etc/ do get etc without the trailing /) and see what happens. It depends on the FS of the server and the client. Please edit your original question accordingly!

comment How to copy symlinks as symlinks from one machine to another?
@user1779617 first of all: when you say "move", do you actually mean "move" or "copy"? Because "move" implies deleting the original file (this was also the reason why I've edited your question). Second thing: are you limited to a specific file transfer protocol (like FTP only)? If so, we should discuss it within the scope of that, and the filesystems we're talking about.

'Move' is kind of misleading here. It is a little unclear if he actually means. 'Move' or 'copy'
