Webdav reply (413) request entity too large

Solved!
Go to solution

Hello,

 

I'm trying to download a large file (about 5GB) from my PXI LabVIEW Real-Time (LabVIEW 2014 SP1) target to my Windows PC host using webdav (I'm not allowed to use FTP). When I send the "WebRequestMethods.Http.Get" to start the download, I get a "(413) request entity too large" error reply that should mean the server refuses to accept a transfer beyound XXXX bytes.

 

The questions are: what is exactly the limit value of XXXX and is there a way to reconfigure that?

 

Regards,

Hi thumble,

 

you might google for "webdav file size limit" to find articles like these

Thx for your quick reply.

I have seen something similar, but since I was able (programmatically) to download a 1 GB file with my current setting of FileSizeLimitInBytes=50,000,000 I didn't look further.

I see at your link the statement: “4 GB, the maximum size dictated by the protocol” but I’m not sure if it’s a protocol requirement or an implementation limitation.

Hi thumble,

 

AFAIK it's a protocol limitation!
