Remote web access download problem with Large Files... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    I am trying to download a file on my server that is around 1.2 gigabyes.  After downloading 8% of the file the download indicator freezes and doesn't appear to be downloading anymore.  This is repeatable on other files as well.   I get no error it just appears to stop downloading.

    Looking for help,

  • Hi,

    While the maximum file size is 2GB, it could be that your are timing out the connection which is pre-set, so it could be worthwhile extending this and trying again.
    To do so, you need to RDP into your server, then from Control Panel, open Administrative Tools - Internet Information (IIS) Manager. This will open the manager snap-in; expand the SERVER branch, then 'right-click' on Web Sites and select 'Properties'. The time out is on the Web Sites Tab.
