Let's say we have machine 1 and machine 2.
Machine 2, which is linux based, is receiving a file (let's say cat.jpg sent via SCP from machine 1 (doesn't really matter which operating system..).
How can I know in machine 2, that the file has finished uploading from machine 1 ?
Please note that by "knowing" I mean by running a command (via a cron that runs every minute), and not by an event driven way ("make the scp issue a command when it is finished uploading").
Another limitation I have is that I can't change anything in machine 1 or in the way it SCP files.
If it really matters:
- the files being transferred are video file, MP4 extension.
- machine 2 is ubuntu 10.10
