Agreed ignore the SSH, I was getting the same problem.

I just edited a line in LVEMUX's Makefile:

Gcc $(CFLAGS) $(INC) -o lvemux lvemux.c mux_out.c

Gcc -D_FILE_OFFSET_BITS=64 $(CFLAGS) $(INC) -o lvemux lvemux.c mux_out.c

Did a make clean; make install and retried.  It worked, not sure if it
will cause other problems or if there is a better way, as I am no

It is all in the link that was provided earlier in the thread.

I don't think the original problem had anything to do with ssh at ALL.

it is
because it wasn't compiled with LFS.  The file accesses in processes
depend in any way on the shell that started it last I heard.  The shell
forked, then the process *replaces* the forked shell in memory.

If ssh won't let you scp > 2G files, it too wasn't compiled with LFS.

It's pretty simple conceptually :)
