This will be either due to wu-ftpd, your server filesystem or your 
client software not supporting large files (ones larger than 2 gig in size)

You should either update the wu-ftpd (get something newer with largefile 
support, newer versions of wu-ftpd _may_ support this), update your 
filesystem (i believe ext2 and ext3 have supported largefiles for quite 
some time now - but if you are using things like vfat then you are SOL) 
or update your client software (I believe software like filezilla under 
windows supports largefiles)

So, really, what you do depends on what is the cause of the problem - 
hope this gives you some starters - I'd probably look at updating 
wu-ftpd first.
