What is the Maximum limit using POST Method

Hi all,
We all know in GET method upto 2048 characters can be appended into URL. In the Same way what is the limit of sending data to server by using POST Method. Why asking this question is because suppose if i will upload 20GB means it will take time to store it in servers disk, definitely there is a loss of session during this process is going on continued until many days(might be). So definitely there is a limit in data sending while POST Method. So please tell me the answer for this problem

It all depends on what server is used and its settings for the maximum POST length (as in Windows Servers). The folllowing is a quote from the Microsoft website http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q208427/
Microsoft Internet Explorer has a maximum uniform resource locator (URL) length of 2,083 characters. Internet Explorer also has a maximum path length of 2,048 characters. This limit applies to both POST request and GET request URLs.

If you are using the GET method, you are limited to a maximum of 2,048 characters, minus the number of characters in the actual path.

However, the POST method is not limited by the size of the URL for submitting name/value pairs. These pairs are transferred in the header and not in the URL.

RFC 2616, "Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1," does not specify any requirement for URL length.
However, in your second entry you refer to an UPLOAD maximum.
Now what is your question about: POST size or maximum upload size??
