1) don't copy a file until it is completely written and closed.
-- Mark Bole http://www.bincomputing.com
[...]Secure copy or secure ftp (scp or sftp) is the first that comes to mind. Secure replacements for rcp and ftp respectively. Requires an ssh daemon on the server you will be copying to and of course the client versions on your oracle server. When using authentication with private/public key pairs it can be running in the background.
I am wanting to write my archive logs to a different server to the one my database runs on.
This server will not be running Oracle therefore I can't send the archive job via NET8, i currently send the file via FTP but is there a slicker method
