So I use rsync over ssh to copy up & down a lot of stuff nighlty between
servers. On Monday, it all went to crap and won't work anymore. The
rsync's just never finish.
So I went ahead and tried to use scp to copy the stuff over manually.. and
now IT times out! It transfers about 168KB, then goes "STALLED". If I
have a file smaller than 168kb, it goes through the entire progress-meter,
but then scp hangs, never returns, and the file it supposedly copied up is
No special parameters on the scp or anything, but I do get a weird
scp * firstname.lastname@example.org:/data/www/htdocs/playtesting/
In my syslog... I don't anything weird.

I have ssh keys set up for passwordless login.
I've restarted ssh (making sure ALL the sshd processes died), I've killed
off all the rsync processes. Interactive ssh seems to work fine.
Production machines that can't really be rebooted.
