500pts: Ftp timeout when DSL plugged into W2k3 but not when plugged into PC - help?
Posted on 2006-04-07
I have a really strange one here. And i just don't know where to start.. But i have done many tests.
Using a standard FTP client to send small files is fine but use it to send for example a 10Mb file then it almost finishes and timesout...
If i take the RJ45 cable from the DSL router and plug it directly into the PC then it works no probs.
But normally the cable is plugged into W2K3 server and using Routing and remote access i support NAT for the clients (pc's)
So basically while connected to the server, the server cannnot send the file as it times out and the workstation cannot either...
But as i say, unplug the cable and plug it directly into a PC (workstation) and reconfigure IP and it works great!
This is really confusing, I have tried disabling the firewall on the Server but it didn't help..
I hope somebody has had this before.... can anyone lend a hand?
here is the bit from the ftp log... pretty standard timeout msg
STATUS:> PWD skipped. Current folder: "/newbie".
227 Entering Passive Mode (209,200,127,138,11,140)
COMMAND:> STOR ASPNETDB.MDF

ERROR:> Timeout (60000 ms) occurred on sending data to the server.
ERROR:> Timeout (60000 ms) occurred on receiving server response.

Any help or advice would be really appreciated
