in thread SCP file size greater than 2GB

Ummmmm? Errrrrrr.... /me scratches head, cogitates, and decides to ask:

First sentence: did you mean "Doesn't" sted "Does?" Seems to me if remote system ok with files > 2GB, one of the two issues you id'ed is non-existent.... hence, would it be correct to emend s/Does/Doesn't/; and then read the rest of the para as "If the answer to question 1 is 'no' and 'yes' to Q2, you'll still...?"

Or, :-) , am I having a logical-or mental glitch?

    "Doesn't" sounds wrong to me, but you're right that the first question needs its phrasing fixed. Should be more like:

    Does the destination filesystem not support files >2GB?

    And then fix the end of the paragraph as you described.

    I'm not happy with the negation there, but I don't feel like taking the time for a more careful fix at the moment :)
