File Copy Between Two Juniper SRX Cluster Members

I have two SRX Cluster Members and managed from remotely. Each time when transferring package file remotely it will take several hours for 140M new junos file.

File copy command can copy file between routing engines but looks does not work well on SRX Cluster.

I tried to login into routing engine re0 or re1 on SRX. It is always in same routing engine. But with node 0 and node 1, it works well.

After a couple of times try, I found a way to use fxp0.0 interface ip to do file transferring:
  file copy /var/tmp/junos10.3.tgz 10.2.8.4:/var/tmp/junos10.3.tgz


and the speed is 2.2MB/s. pretty nice. And file transferring can be done in 1 minutes.
