Join multiple Split files in Unix


I have a big file of 50GB size. I need copy it to a second ftp from a ftp. I am not able to do the full 50GB transfer as it timesout after some time. SO i am trying to split the file into 5gb each 10 files with the below command.

split -b 5368709120 pack.tar.gz backup.gz

After I transfer these files to the second ftp, what is the command I need to use to join the files into a single file properly. Can some one please help me over here. Can you also please suggest If there is any good way of transferring the whole file at once?

for text files it is cat.

i hope it would work for binary files also.

What is the O/S of the source and the destination computers?
What is the network connection between the two machines. There is normally no timeout on command line "ftp" as such. Is there a firewall? How far did the copy get before it failed? Do you have a duplex problem on your network connections?
My first inclination would be to use "rcp", NFS, or removable media such as a tape.
