I have been having a problem with multiple uploading of large results file, especially on CPDN (8.15 mbs zips), but also multiple uploads on Ufluids, (Einstien and seti work fine) I am not at all clear as to why this is happening, if its my set up, BOINC or the Server.

I have checked and double checked my router and connection settings and they seem ok to me.

The wu's time out on transfer and then goes into 'retry in xxx' mode, retries and then times out again and so on and on.

If a single wu comes up for a result upload, the data, when I look at the wu's on the web site, appears to have gone up to the server, on CPDN as results P1, but the Transfer message will not finish, staying on about 2.89 % upload until time out. If it is a multiple wu's results upload then nothing seems to get up to the server.

I don't know the what result file sizes this project will run, but if there is a possibility that they may be big, can that be tested out here?

BTW - A secondary problem is that when I abort the file transfer the wu is lost and gone. What I would like to see is that I can retry the transfer later on, without having the wu sit there timing out, so as to have time and space to be able to try and understand what is going on, check out what is on the server and review my computer settings etc.
