VPN drops connection to specific servers for exactly 10 minutes


OSNN One Post Wonder
Sep 1, 2010
I am running windows 7 connected to the internet through a router using a PPPoE DSL connection.

I am connecting to a RRAS VPN server setup on a windows 2003 server machine.

When I transfer a large file from a server on the VPN (, communication eventually stops with the machine before the file transfer can complete. When this happens, communication resumes in exactly 10 minutes from when it was dropped. The connection to the VPN server is not dropped completely however. I can still communicate with the other machines on the VPN server.

I have tried connecting from Windows XP and Windows Vista with both Wired and Wireless NICs and the problem persists. I believe the problem is either with my router, my DSL conenction or the setup of the VPN server. Does anyone have ideas?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
