We have an application that FTPs images from the client to our servers and with large transfers this error gets thrown "Connection reset by peer: socket write error" any ideas?

We use FillaZilla as our FTP client

Hi,
sounds like some kind of a timeout problem.
Does your ftpd (server) get started with a timeout ('-t') option?
If yes, try to increase that value (modify in inetd.conf, then recycle inetd).
The default is 900 seconds, which might not be enough for your environment.

Hi again,
... or is there a firewall between your clients and your server?
It might be that this firewall has timeouts configured, too.

They just have a windows firewall.  I am going to dig deeper into the FTP software to see if there is a timeout.  I did not see anything but it may be a hidden setting.  
thanks

woolmilkporc is on the right track.  This sounds like the typical timeout problem.  Normally the timeout takes place on the command/control session.

In Fillazilla select edit, settings and then select connection.  There should be a box at top with "keep alive settings".  Make sure that they are enabled and I would set the interval to 30-60 seconds.
