I am trying to have an infinite scp between two hosts but of course there is no such file large enough for this.
scp -l 512 192.168.1.1:/dev/zero /dev/null
But scp says /dev/zero not a regular file.
I need a consistent traffic between two hosts so I can try something on my router/firewall and I really need it to run for a long time.
Any suggestions? It does not have to be scp but I need to be able to specify the speed.
