Check with your network people - they may have put a limit on. We do not know how it was set up in your place.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for your response. I will check with network people.

In general, is there any limitation of size that can be transfered via SFTP? Is it recommended to transfer huge files ( 1 gb or more than 1 gb ) via SFTP?

Thanks in Advance.

AFAIK, there's no size limit in ANY FTP -- but there may be limits on the size of the file that can be created on the receiving machine, or network limits, etc that would affect an FTP transfer.

Hello,

The limit will be determined by the available space on the target system (volume, directory, whatever).

If your download fills some file system on the target, expect those admins (and others impacted) to be quite unhappy . . . icon_cool.gif
