FTP Timeout Issue on Enterprise Edition

Hi,

I am totally stumped on an FTP issue, hopefully someone will be able to give some assistance.  We are trying to download a 1mb zip file from an ftp server the spec of which is not yet known. I CAN download the file from a 2000 server, a 2003 STD server without any issues at all.

The problem is on my 2003 Enterprise servers. These boxes are in Terminal Server user mode and have 2 NIC cards each. When I try to download from these servers. The file transer always starts. Part of the file downloads however by 256k the process hangs and eventually a timeout error will occur.

I have checked the IE Advanced options, they are idential to the box that works. I have also tried this via Cute FTP, same issue.

I do have a group policy which is fiarly restrictive, i have disabled this for testing and still no luck.

Does anyone have any ideas?

thanks,

matt

"part of the file downloads" do you mean most of the file like 80% or it is different value every time you download?

Ok, solved my own issue here. I had 2 NICs one with a gateway and one without for use in Session Directory.  I had to change the gateway to the other NIC and it resolved the issue.

thanks to all who tried to help
