When we are downloading a large file 100MB + with Internet Explorer the
workstation will at some point report that the connection was reset by the
server and we lose the download. This is kind of random and I've only seen
it in IE. I have and use Firefox at my desk and I have no trouble like
this. But our campus standard is IE and I really would like to pin this down.

My fear is the Packet filters. I went and looked at the packet filters we
have set up and was shocked to see we had 77 filter exceptions. My last
look only showed 45 so I need to sit down and review every filter exception
and thin the heard. Anyway, below are the exception for http which is what
I believe IE uses in downloading files. Right? and wanted a second option
from you guys.

We have NW 6.5 sp 5 BM 3.8 sp 4 ir3 and I use Craigs tuneup and proxycfg.

the packet typ HTTP is defines as:

Protocol TCP
SRC Port ALL
DEST Port 80
ACK bit Filtering disabled
Stateful Filtering enabled

The filter exception are:
