Question File transfer stalled after round 40MB (scp, ftp, http, cp)


I'm trying to transferee a file from my server to my computer in someway but the transfer gets stalled after around 40MB.

I have tried transfer via scp, ftp, http, samba and I have also tried copying the file to an USB disc with the exact same result.

I'm running latest debian.

Anyone know why this happens??? Really annoying.

could it be the file itself? have you tried any other large files?

Does this occur all the time?
or just at one particular server?

as on the server side it self they can set time out times, and maximum times for you to be able to connect in a row.

just for testing try to find another server and download some big file.
see if it still occurs then.. as at the moment it can be because of 2 things..

Regards,
Marco

I have tried different file with different file size. Always the same problem. It's not on the client the problem is it's on my server. I can't even copy from one disc to a connect usb drive with cp command.
