The issue: When trying to transfer data (more than 5MB) from one computer to another, the transfer stops, and the PC drops of the network forcing a restart. My setup - both are running Win98 OSR1 - desktop PC and laptop. The desktop is also acting as a proxy server. PCI Ethernet (internet) and USB Ethernet (for proxy). From the USB I have a crossover cable (in lieu of a hub) run to the laptop. I'm usually rotating between 'SohoConnect' and 'AnalogX Proxy Server' depending on my needs (IMAP vs. FTP). Strangely, in the past this hasn't happened. And this has happened under Win2K too. This occurs even when the proxy program isn't running. It also doesn't work when I'm not logged into the college network (re: physically disconnected). Any thoughts?
