Hi all,

We have a Debian Linux 3.0, running kernel 2.4.18, and all filesystems are formatted as ext3.

My problem is: when I try to mount an w2k share in this machine using smbmount, I can't see big files correctly. I suspect that the problem happens with files bigger then 2GB. I have a file in the w2k machine that's 4GB size, and when I mount the share in the linux machine, I see that file with just about 360MB!

First I tried with smbfs 2.2.3 that comes with the distro. After a I tried with version 2.2.8 that's avaiable at samba site as a debian package. Finally I tried with 'unstable' version "2.999+3.0" that debian provides. Had the same results with all of them.

Any help?

Thanks in advance.
