Topic "error code: 5 after 2GB"

Hi. I'm having problems downloading files larger than 2GB.
Protocol was SFTPv3. I did not try SCP because my connection is not that good and since it does not support resuming I had no other choice.
After copying 2GB I get following message.

Code:

Bad message (badly formatted packet or protocol incompatibility).
Error code: 5
Error message from server: Bad message
Request code: 5


I'm not quite sure what's the reason for this.
From your FAQ I've found out that SFTPv3 should be able of transfer larger than 4GB.
The file was in a SMB-mounted directory. Could it be there is something wrong with the Samba thing ?

Best,

Igor

Does the problem occur with WinSCP 4.1.9 ?

Do you have the problem with other SFTP clients?

Also read FAQ.
