when you copy locally cp is automatically invoked
maybe ssh/scp is not compiled with 64 bit file support, so the maximum
size of the file you can copy is about 2.4 G
check also if for both system you have support for large files
(sizeof(file_length) is 64 bits); i'm not sure about AIX, but any recent
version of linux allready has large files support enabled with default
