Provide solution and advises for ICT for developpement in Africa

Welcome to Tohouri's website

I'm very happy to have you as this website's guest. Through this web pages I would like to share with you my interests for ICT for Development, Telemedicine and Free and Libre Open Source Software.

It was not that easy to start this website. At the beginning I was asking to my self: Who is interested of what you're doing? Is it not a little bit megalomaniac to create a website about yourself and what you're doing? will you have time to publish articles etc. on it?

resume ssh download

This morning I wake up to noticed that my large file transfer tom my server was interrupted!!! Thx rsync to help me resum it using the following command!!

If you need to resume an scp transfer, try with rsync:

rsync --partial --progress --rsh=ssh user@host:remote_file local_file

All the best!
