Large file support, samba lunix

By , last updated May 20, 2007

In order to transfer files larger than 2GB, you need to enable large file support on the samba server and mount the client side with the option lfs.

Server side:
large readwrite = on

Client side:
mount -t smbfs -o username=remote_user,uid=local_user,rw,lfs //server/remote_user path_to_mount_point
