in reply to SCP file size greater than 2GB

Does the destination filesystem support files >2GB? Do you need to decompress those files at the destination? If yes to both, then you'll still be stuck. You may be able to transfer them there in compressed form, but you won't be able to decompress them, at least not completely.

The -C option to scp will compress on the fly.

    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 :)
