Hi all,

I am running samba 3.0.14 on ubuntu breezy badger networked with another 
ubuntu machine and my XP laptop.

File sharing is great except when a file exceeds 1.5 - 2 GB. The file transfer 
fails after 1.5 - 2 GB  with a file to large error. This seems to be a limit 
for linux - windows and linux - linux which is a pain when trying to move 
large DVD iso's. 

Does anyone know a workaround ? or come to that why is there such a low 
limit ?
