Hi all,

On an end,
OpenSSH_3.4p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, Openssl 0x0090605f  on a Windows
2000 Server.

on the other end,
OpenSSH_4.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7g 11 Apr 2005 on a FreeBSD 5.4-Stable.

for backup purposes, we transfer a large file from the second to first
weekly. When file size exceeds 2 G

So: copying from BSD to Windows, and sftp and scp both fail for files > 2GB?

I'm pretty sure some windows file systems don't support files larger than 2GB. NTFS should be OK (I have >2GB files on my machine with NTFS) but FAT32 could be a problem. I can't remember if it always has a 2GB limit, or if the limit is dependent on the block size you chose when you formatted the drive. I'm sure google knows :)
