Topic "File transfer fail after 2GB"

Author Message


I have been trying to transfer some very large files (around 10G) from my local windows to a cloud Windows server 2012 using the sftp option. The transfer is fine for small files but when I transfer the large files, it just fails at around 20% which is 2GB. Is this to do with file size??
But I have tried WinSCP sftp to a linux machine and it seemed fine. the transfer continued after 2GB.
I have also tried to tried using pscp, psftp, but the speed was too slow..
does anyone know what is happening?
Also, I have tried rsync to the cloud server, but it just won't work, neither does scp. But I can SSH to it.
