.net fileupload getting a "The connection was reset" error

I am trying to use some file upload code, but it uploads for a while, then crashes and get's this error. "The connection was reset"

sometimes it works, but usually does not,

I put this in the web.config, but it did not help

  <httpRuntime executionTimeout="90" maxRequestLength="2097151" useFullyQualifiedRedirectUrl="false" minFreeThreads="8" minLocalRequestFreeThreads="4" appRequestQueueLimit="100" />

is there something I'm missing, or no?

any help is appreciated

TheWebGuy38 i tried your code and didn't found any problem although it doesn't show any type of success msgs, i tried it 2-3 times. The possible reasons for ur failure of code may be the executionTimeout="90" for your large size of files due to which 90 sec time limit is crossed and finally time out is done. Could u tell me that how much size did u tried to upload ?? and how long it took for uploading..?


if other thing regarding thread etc are not really important with your code (since i have not complete information abt ur project ) try with only above code and if necessary increase the executionTimeout
