I’m trying to use SFTP to transfer files to my My Passport Wireless Pro drive. It is connected via WiFi to my local network. I have SSH enabled and am able to transfer smaller files, but it stops at exactly 2GB (2147483648 bytes) with any files larger than that.
I’ve tried this by uploading a file from a linux machine using the standard sftp client and a python sftp library, and I’ve tried it from Windows using WinSCP and all fail at the same place.
The drive has over 3TB free, so I’m not running out of space. When using the sftp client on linux, I can issue a ‘reput’ to finish the upload, but I need to do the upload in one shot (and I can’t keep ‘reputting’ every 2GB).
I’ve logged in via SSH and can access the system files, but I don’t see anything obvious for setting a max filesize, or a timeout or anything like that.
Any suggestions on how to get past the 2GB limit?
