    File Size Limit - FTP - HTTP

    I am trying to move a file from one server to another (two different servers). The file is 2.82gb in size and cannot be broken up.

    I've FTP and WGET to pull the file down but it ends up crashing due to "file size limit exceeded"

    Any ideas?

    What ftp daemon are you using?

    There shouldn't be any file size limits on the FTP server.

    If you do a 'ulimit -f' on the target machine, what do you get?

    Hi,

    When uploading files from a client, the server will check for any configured limit against the size of the file being sent, and abort any transfers if/when the given file's size exceeds the configured limit.

    For further details check this URL:
