do you have extra storage space available (at least size of package)?
PackageBuddy, X-Port and Sloup all use the same core code (that I contributed)
that fixes up object pointers in a copy so that the package can be
reinstalled elsewhere.

if you've got enough space, you might try X-Port if it's a comms problem.

other options: email the package as attachment, or EEtransfer.

NewtDevEnv, Newt's Cape, Sloup, Crypto,...
