But is that right that with this approach, files greater than the limit will
simply not be transfered to the client? 

We have two jigsaw servers working in the following manner: a browser
connects to the first jigsaw server acting as a mirror, which redirect the
request to the second jigsaw server acting as a proxy, which forward the
request to a web server.

(browser) <-> (mirror) <-> (proxy) <-> (web server)

If I'd like to limit the size of files transmitted between my proxy and my
mirror, I can use a filter on the proxy, but files greater than the limit
will not be transmitted. Is there a way to cut these files, on the proxy, in
parts smaller than the limit, so that the mirror will reassemble the file
and transmit it to the browser?

Thanks for any reply,
