FTP times out on large file

Filezilla running on both ends.
Windows server 2008
 118 gig file.
Connects, download starts,  then fails at 64g repeatedly.
running pasv on server

in the filezilla log:

(000009) 9/15/2014 18:50:55 PM - mymachine (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - my ip)> RETR mybigfile
(000009) 9/15/2014 18:50:55 PM - mymachine (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - my ip)> 150 Opening data channel for file download from server of "/mybigfile"


(000005) 9/15/2014 17:02:06 PM - mymachine (xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx - my ip)> 426 Connection closed; aborted transfer of "/mybigfile"


Any ideas?
Thanks

Check your firewall to make sure it does not trigger a reset.
Look at using wireshark to monitor traffic to see whether it stops for a time that exceeds the idle timeout period.

Any anti-virus, that may be what introduces a delay that leads to the timeout.

Here's one trick you can try.

1. Start the file upload via FTP
2. While that is running, open a command prompt and run a ping -t to the FTP server

The constant ping may help keep the connection going and prevent a timeout, if that's what is happening.

It could be file size issue (greater than 64gb).

Check the FTP servers timeout for the control channel connection, the default is 120 seconds.
