Windows 7 network drops out when transferring files to SBS2003
Posted on 2011-09-06
Windows server 2003 small business server networked to 4 windows 7 PC's on a domain setup.
When trying to transfer large files between the windows 7 machines and the server, half way through transferring the connection to the server drops out for up to 20 seconds before coming back on. needless to say the file transfer fails. I have disabled IPv6 from all the windows 7 machines and made sure the server and windows 7 machines are all up to date as well as trying a few things from other online forums but to no avail.
I took my windows vista laptop in today and put that on the network and it will transfer large files with no issues whatsoever so i am drawn to think it is the relationship between the windows 7 machines and server 2003.
The problems start occuring when trying to transfer a file about 1GB and over. it starts off transferring at a reasonable speed but between a quarter and half way through the network will drop out and the transfer fails.
Any help would be much appreciated!
