[Samba] 2.2.12 large file support (> 4 GB)

Thanks for the help,
I was totally unaware that smbfs and Samba were not related. If this is a
recurring, annoying question, perhaps a FAQ entry would steer folks like me
in the right direction (I did read that). I will check out cifsfs.

Did you do any homework before asking the list?
1. smbfs is NOT samba! It is also NOT part of Samba.
2. smbfs has a 2GB file size limit as you found out.
3. Use CIFSFS.
4. This is not the smbfs mailing list.

Samba does NOT have a 2GB file size limit - smbfs is NOT samba.

You are NOT using Samba. If you have mounted a Windows share under Linux you
will have used either smbfs or cifsfs.
