Do you have a serial console?  It might be less hassle to setup ppp or sl
and transfer the file that way.

Don't attach a core dump.  That's more than a bit too big.

Once you get the core dump to a machine where you have gdb you can
try to get a stack backtrace.  That might point out enough of the
problem that you won't need to send the core dump to anyone else.
