Data truncation when downloading a file using ftp in Unix
I downloaded a file using FTP in Unix, but when i opened i found that the last record is partly truncated.
When i saw the control file, i came to understand that some 656 records are missing in the downloaded file .
The downloaded file's size is 1GB, but i think UNIX has a 2GB limit for download.
Is the size limit the problem here or should any specific parameters be passed in FTP command?
