Caldera Openlinux 3.1 Proftpd problem

Whenever a user tries to log in, the following error occurs:

Socket connected. Waiting for welcome message...
                yp_all: clnt_call: RPC: Can't decode result
                yp_all: clnt_call: RPC: Can't decode result
                yp_all: clnt_call: RPC: Can't decode result

This happens to nis clients when they log in as well.  Everything
still works, however they get an RPC error at logon.

Any help would be appreciated.  Let me know if more information is



1. 2 GB file size limitation in Caldera OpenLinux 3.1 using Samba and ftp server

I did an upgrade from Caldera OpenLinux 2.3 to 3.1 using the update
The kernel is 2.4.2.

A Windows 2000 client attempted to copy a file using the Windows
Explorer from a local drive to a Samba shared drive. The file was
approximately 3.0 GB in size. After copying 2.0 GB, the Windows explorer

reported that the connection was lost to the Linux Samba server. The
Windows 2000 client is using NTFS. The Linux drives are e2fs on a 30 GB
SCSI hard drive. There was 9 GB of free space remaining on the target
hard drive.

The client then tried to use SmartFTP to copy the same file to the same
directory. The result was the same. The FTP client reported that the FTP

server had dropped the connection after moving exactly 2.0 GB of data.

The Caldera OpenLinux 3.1 White Paper states that the file size
limitation is 1.0 TB, but this appears not to be true. We upgraded to
Caldera OpenLinux 3.1 just for that purpose, but I don't see performance

I upgraded the kernel to version 2.4.14 after this and tested one more
time, but
I got the same results.

I tried on another machine with the same Caldera OpenLinux upgraded in
the same
manner. I had a FAT32 partition with a 3.0 GB file on it. I mounted the
partition with
Linux and copied the file using the cp command from the FAT32 partition
to a e2fs
Linux partition. The copy went flawlessly.

Are there limitations on Samba and the ftp server that comes with
Caldera OpenLinux
3.1? Are there limitations with any other Linux Distributions, such as
