If you're using IBM's AIX OpenSSH packages then some versions of those
were compiled without large file support. I think the current ones are OK.
(It probably works locally because "scp file1 file2" becomes "cp file1
file2", if you want to really test it try "scp file1 localhost:file2" on
your AIX box).
