Hello. I have a VPN set up between office A and office B. Office A has three servers (2003). Office B has four servers (three 2003 and one 2008).
I am generally unable to copy files larger than about 30 mb from a server in office A to a server in office B (and vice versa). The copy will run for a few seconds and then get the error: The specified network name is not longer available.
I have messed with the MTU settings to no avail.
I have two servers recently installed with server 2003 with no firewall or antivirus installed. These are the two I am testing with.
I have ruled out a router issue between the two offices. Extensive research of the logs show no packet drops. To also rule out the routers .... and an interesting side note....
I can copy a large file from a 2003 server in office A to the 2008 server in office B just fine.
In fact, I can copy a 1gb file from 2003 in office A to the 2008 server in office B. And at the same time try copying a 30mb file from the same 2003 server in office A to a 2003 server in office B and will get the error message on that file copy.
I have exhausted google search and can't seem to come up with a solution. I'm wondering if the 2003/2008 comparison may hold a clue for someone?

Please first reset the TCP setting on both servers.
How to reset Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
May I know if we have patched the latest service pack and hotfixes for these fresh Windows Server 2003 server hosts ? Can also verify if any warring or error hat regarding with issue was shown form event viewer on the servers both sides ? and will get same issue when transfer data through other protocols like FTP ?
