We are having a problem with smbclient running tar back to a FreeBSD
system for Amanda. smbclient seems to be choking on large files. Of the
many singularly uninformative error messages, the primary error* is
mid from server"
Searching all FAQ's and news groups shows this has been a problem for
several users since 8/2000 with no published response from anyone
except a cryptic note to "downgrade to 2.0.7", which is the version
claims to be.
Do you have or can you point to any further information?

kind regards,
