I am relatively new to using linux but is there any way to allow my centos install to resume files larger then 2gb in size. If so how can this be done? I am running CentOS release 5.3 (Final) Thanks in advanced.

What FTP server are you using? – Bill Weiss Sep 22 '09 at 21:50
pure-ftpd i think... For some reason my ftp service isn't even running now... I usually manage my ftp users via lxadmin - but now no one can connect to the ftp - I have no idea what has happened – Malachi Sep 24 '09 at 17:35

I didn't manage to solve the Resume limit issues - however the problems with starting pure-ftpd were resolved in a different question asked: my pure-ftpd server on centos is not working

I am curious. If you enable the SSHD daemon on port 22 and SFTP (via the SSHD ftp module) using a SFTP client, what limit do you encounter?
