File size limit exceeded...
I was trying to transfer over 2 folders which, in all, are about 120 gigs of hard disk space. I was using a Slackware 12.0 box and was transfering them to a windows xp pro box. I setup a share on the xp pro box. Then on the slackware box, I mounted the share and then cp -R the two folders into the share. Everything went fine, after 2 gigs downloaded into the windows xp pro box, activity on tcpdump (dst port where the connection to the share was made) stopped. I checked the cp -R konsole and it returned a File size limit exceeded message.
Why does this happen? Buffer space allowed for the tcp connection not big enough? Anyway around this? The winxp pro box is ntfs with plenty of free hd space. Both the Slackware box and the Winxp Pro Box each have 2 gigs of ram. Suprisingly download stopped after 2 gigs.
