I have a new NAS box. I am currently copying over the files from the old NAS box. They both have gigabit ethernet connections, but sadly the switch they are plugged into is only 100MBit.

I started off copying the files from Windows, using drag/drop, but this proved to be a little slow (I assume that it was copying the files from NAS1->PC->NAS2). So I found this guide which showed me how to SSH into NAS2, and then use smbclient to pull the files direct from NAS1.
