Quickly Copy Large Directory Tree Via SSH

·
To copy the entire directory tree at /some/path to other.host via SSH...


find /some/path -print | sort | cpio -o -Hnewc | ssh -C other.host "cpio -idvum"

Make sure you use an absolute path to the directory tree.  Existing files on the destination host will be overwritten unconditionally.
