problem in transferring file from linux to windows

this is my first post in this wesite
I am a new user in linux and I am using fortran in linux to solve my nonlinear euqations.
I connect to a remote computer and work with linux using secureFX and secureCRT terminals. I didnt have problem using them for several months but it is about one weeks that when I use terminals, in the middle of solution it suddenly stops (sth like hanging out).
first I thought that it would be because of low free space because I had many files (outputs of my solution) in remote computer.
so started to transfer them to my windows but usig "copy" in secureFX and "past" in my folder in my windows or even using WINSCP software which I downloaded from internet, the copying process is again stopped after I transfer 5 or 6 files and there is an error that mentions that the connection is aborted. I searched in the internet and guess that the problem is related to the network , I found several command to check the network; I used "ping" and using this command no packet is lost but the response time is very high sometimes in order of 1000ms!!! so I thinck that the network has problem but searching briefly in the intenet, I just found several commands which help me just checking the network and I dont know how to solve the problem! so far I just reboot the remote sytem whenever it happened! but I want to ask about the solution of this problem if anybody knows.

ping of 1000msec is drastically wrong. I admire your patience!

I will mention one other thing. Text files are terminated in windows with cr/lf (=carriage Return, then line feed) whereas linux uses only one. Many linux programs are windows tolerant, but YMMV. In windows world line endings go crazy.

There are little utilities like 'dos2unix' and unix2dos' or some such for straightening things out. I have found this a problem with versions of the _same_software_ for linux & windows.
