Since we're talking on the libcurl mailing list, the above line seems to be
the problem to discuss here.

libcurl has no problems to transfer a 2GB file. Can you please provide lots of
more details on what libcurl version you're using and what makes this
particular transfer different than others etc?

What's the reason you can't repeat this from the command line? If getting 2GB
using PHP (from inside of Apache) fails but it works with the command line
tool, doesn't that rather hint that the problem is not within libcurl?

How much of the 2GB gets transfered and at what stage does it stop? How long
(wall) time does it work until it stops?
