Unable to upload files to windows 2000 server.   I'm able to download files for different sizes for the windows server.  this is a laptop that in not joined to the domain.  This is pointing more to my windows 2000 server as I can reproduce the error  with a second windows vista machine.  An sugest on what might need to change on the server would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Derek

have you turned off the firewall in vista just to make sure that is not the cause for the problem.

Yes, I did.  With firewall on or off I could download files of different sizes.  But for upload to the windows 2000 Server there is a limit.  I was able to upload a 55kb file but was not able to update a 84kb file and up.  I will try to find the size limit that is forcing the copy to time out and give me a network error:  There is a problem accessing (the file path).

Problem resolved after hardware upgrade to switches.  I have had a problem since I switched to a gigabyte switch by the server and replace the old switch in the office where Vista PC was.
