you are not mentioning how you do prepare the data which is posted to the server.

Which engine is processing your post? PHP or LC Server?

In your bug report you are writing "to a large file". How big is "large"?

You are posting data to the server to get back the large file, right? 

Is the file plain text or binary data?

If you are using LC Server scripts on your server to handle the posts...
Which version of LC Server was installed in your old hosting package? 
- If it was a lower version than the currently installed one , then i would do a custom install of that LC Server version that was installed on your old hosting package and try with that version.
  That could be done in some minutes.

Does the large file already exist  on the  server or is it created on the fly when the data is posted to the server?
- If the file already exists on the server i would create a little .php or .lc test script which just outputs/returns the file back when executed.
- If the file is created on the fly, then i would first create a large sample file on the server and would then try with some test scripts.
This would show if the server has problems with large files in general, but i doubt it has.

Is the file returned with http headers or just returned plain without any headers?

But there are several desktop apps that provide training development, management and real-time monitoring. All of those apps became non-functional as soon as the upgrades were done, and remain so. I haven't been able to figure out how to restore functionality.
