Default Limit of POST

I know, by testing, the limit of GET is 2046 bytes. How about POST?

I believe this is the limit of a querystring value (technicly not the limit of a get)

I have never reached the limit of a post and post over 10,000 chars into database fields every day. If you have a enterprize data store, grunty hardware and generaly a good network the IMO the sky is the limit. Interested to hear a more experienced opinion on this one.

I don't think there is an overall limit for the size of a submission, however if I remember rightly, there is a size limit of 102,399 bytes per form field when accesed from the request collection in ASP.

You can get around this problem by splitting oversize fields into smaller fields using client-side script before posting or by binary reading and parsing the request collection at the server.
