G4/PC 2GB transfer limit

I have been able to TCP/IP fileshare between my Macintosh machines and a Windows 2000 Server.  The Macs are able to see the Win2000 Server, but the Win2000 Server cannot see the Macs.  This is fine.  However this is used to transfer large media files that can exceed 4 GB.  Any file larger than 2GB is not able to copy from the MacG4 (OS9.2.2) to the Win2000 Server.  I get an error Type-40.  Is this an AFP issue?  I believe AppleTalk may be the culprit.  Could this also be an NTFS/FAT32 issue on my Win2000 side?

This is an appletalk issue. Using OS X or FTP should fix it.

There is a 2GB file size limit in OS 9.x. You will run up against the same problem using Entourage if your mail/calendar/contact Database gets up around 2GB as well. FileMaker Pro has the same problem. Jaguar boosts the file size to 4 GB.

That's a file size limit, not the "available disk space" limit.
