I have been analysing data transfers between two machines and one storage location. One of the connections is successful and the other is not. The only difference between the two transfers is the the successful one has TSV and TSER information attached to the SYN, ACK and FIN packets.

My question is.......what is the significance of these values? I have been doing some research into what they are, but I have just got the standard definitions. Does the lack of this information mean that the transfer will ultimately fail?

No clue . . . but gessing that timestamp values have little to do with the success or failure of a transfer. Are both "machines" same OS, same version?

Good luck,

Both machines are running Windows XP SP3 and they are the patch level as well.

Well, as obvious as it sounds . . . something's different. You'll need to figure out what. Different bindings on the network interfaces . . . different settings on the client . . .

You've never posted what the failure is. You say only one is successful, but have you traced the transfer to see the error message? Does it time out? Are you going thru a firewall?

Good luck,
