    From Lestat9@1:103/705 to All on Sun Aug 1 23:04:36 2021
    I have a file on my system. Temple.crabdance.com

    Its a rar file and about 3 GB in size.

    It seems people are not able to download it but they can download other
    smaller files on the system.

    Any idea's of what it may be, I have also given the user level 90.
    Thx

    What's the error or issue? What download protocol are they trying to use? There are known issues with ZMODEM and files > 2GB (or sometimes 4GB) in size, but YMODEM or YMODEM-g should work fine (depending on the client).

    I don't think the user's security level has anything to do with it.
