Sharepoint 2.0 and 3.0 document upload issue

Hello
we have SBS 2003 running WSS 2.0 and 3.0. Sometime ago we started having problem uploading larger document onto both websites. 18k Word doc works fine, but for example 2.9MB doc times out. However one of the users noticed when she logs in via VPN she can upload larger files

What can be causing this?

Thank you

Unrelated. The search issue is a red herring. Easily fixed (separate question, later.)
As far as the ability to upload large files, and the fact that it works over VPN, I'd guess either a network card issue. Either hardware directly or a driver issue. Since VPN connections are slow, they aren't putting the card under load and the driver isn't having to juggle data as quickly, so things work. On a local connection, the card and driver are being asked to do much more, and much more quickly, so if packets get dropped, the connection times out.
Start by upgrading the NIC drivers on the server and the workstations with the issue (at least a test workstation where you can reproduce the problem.)
If that doesn't fix it, try replacing the NIC with some spare hardware you have during a maintenance window so you can test the results.

Hey Cliff

I found that AVG was causing the problem, I have disabled it and restarted the server and it works, now I need to see what setting is messing it up

but thanks for quick response!

Glad to hear it. I should've thrown that in there....many security software packages wedge their security scanning engine into the network stack, so this is actually in line with the causes I mentioned about it being a network related issue. It didn't occur to me at the time I was writing it to list A/V as a culprit though, so an oversight on my part. Glad you caught it. Will have to update my mental notes for the future so I don't forget again.
