Remmina RDP Unable to Transfer Large Files Between Machines

Post by Bob from Accounting » Tue Sep 10, 2019 7:40 pm

Starting a few weeks ago I am no longer able to transfer files over 2.1GB between a Windows VM and my Linux Mint desktop using shared folders in an RDP session. It behaves as if the transfer was successful but files larger than 2.1GB always end up at 2.1 and are unusable. I am using Mint 19.1 Mate. I must have been an update somewhere along the line but I have no idea which one. Do I just remove and re-install Remmina?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try installing latest Remmima and also other similar programs.

Sounds like a 32-bit issue. That is, are we still talking about the same Windows VM or in this case a 32-bit Windows install versus former 64-bit ones?

I phrased that poorly, it happens between all windows machines. Windows 10 64bit, Windows Server 2012 R2 64bit, Windows Server 2016. The weird thing is, it worked between the same machines a few weeks ago. I will go ahead and update Remmina specifically and see if that helps.

It's got nothing to do with Mint.
