solaris 2.6 package of wu-ftpd 2.6.0 with large file support

Post by Michael Wa » Mon, 05 Jun 2000 04:00:00

The wu-ftpd version wu-2.6.0 can not handle file large than 2GB.

It returns a error:

ftp> get large_file
200 PORT command successful.
550 large_file: Value too large for defined data type.

With the demo program listed below, I verified that this error comes
from fopen() tries to open a file greater than 2GB:

#include <stdio.h>

main() {
  if ( fopen("large_file", "r") == NULL) {


I modified the source code of wu-ftpd version 2.6.0, change fopen()
to fopen64() as such. The new build has large file support.

The solaris package is in
under solaris-pkg.

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.
