"tar" for large files?

We run HP-UX 11.0. "tar" won't work on files bigger than 2 GB. At another job we had a gnu utility which was called, I think "gtar". Where do I get that?
I think that pax will do this, but I don't know how to use pax.

GNU tar is what Veritas Netbackup uses.

Here are a couple of links:

The GNUtar is best solution if, you don't have any back up solution and you wanna backup more than 2G files.
