I'm having a wierd issue i've never experienced with ASP before.  On a particular web server (Win2k) any page using ASP connecting to an access database will "time out" if you sit on the form page for more then a few seconds.  Only pages using access and forms do this.  And it's after no more then say 20 seconds.  If you fill out the form quickly it will process perfectly. Different programmers / Different databases  / Different Scripts / Some use DSN some Don't
Same Server,  All are MS Access Databases.

For instance filling out this question form would never work it takes longer then 10 seconds to fill in the info.  After I click submit   I get a page that comes up and states the following:
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address.

What you can try:
     Diagnose Connection Problems  
     More information

This problem can be caused by a variety of issues, including:

Internet connectivity has been lost.
The website is temporarily unavailable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is not reachable.
The Domain Name Server (DNS) does not have a listing for the website's domain.
If this is an HTTPS (secure) address, click Tools, click Internet Options, click Advanced, and check to be sure the SSL and TLS protocols are enabled under the security section.  


Any ideas?  I'm at a loss on this one.  I dont even know what to try!
Also I copied one of the forms and database to my local PC and ran it on PWS without issue.
