NFS file system limitation?

Why do I see the different file size over the embedded system using NFS.

original file is over the 4G byte. but, I couldn't see the original size through the NFS like below.

Is there any limitation "NFS" ?
Do I need to modify the kernel..?

What's your NFS version? NFS version 2 only can handle 2GB file size.
