Unhappy Can't resume file transfer on files larger than 1 gig


Hello,

I've been trying to google this oddity over the past couple days but I haven't been able to find anything that's even giving me a hint as to what I should do.

I am trying to sFTP a large file to a machine running debian sarge, kernel version 2.4. If the file transfer becomes interrupted and the file is under a gigabyte, it can be resumed. However, it the file is larger than a gigabyte resuming/appending isn't possible. Is there something so fundamentally basic that I need to set/establish in order to resume an upload that is larger than 1 gig?

A million thanks to those who are kind enough to offer suggestions!

1GB - not that I've heard.

2 GB - Yes. >2 GB requires "large file" support. You have to first insure the filesystem you're sending to has this support. You also have to insure the utility you're using has this support. Doing "man sftp" should answer the latter question. Examining the fstab and checking details for the filesystem type you see there for the target filesystem should let you know whether it has this support and if so whether you need other options to enable it in fstab.

Yes, you're right here. The file is over 2 gigs - I am sorry for not being clear.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I appreciate it!!
