Mixed up servers

By opie3001 ·
Ok have a server that can send and receive any file size from a workstation but the workstation can only send files smaller the 10Mb any bigger and it crashes saying can no longer see server. Have checked switches, routers, and all other network stuff. Also checked the subnet mask and TCP/IP stack. Running out of ideas

Problem transfering files larger then 10 meg

by Paul W In reply to Mixed up servers

I had a similiar problem with one of my machines and it ended up being a faulty on board network interface card.

Quickest way to test is do disable the on board NIC and install a PCI NIC and use that.

If you don't have an on board NIC then just replace the card

on the NIC on the workstation. Try setting it to anything besides "Auto".
