I'm facing this issue whereby my daily mirroring of files from NAI gets timed out repeatedly. Initally, I was mirroring from http://update.nai.com but my firewall often drops packet due to 'out of state' issues. The guys from the network side tells me is because the packets are taking too long to come back and the firewall drops the session as a result.
They suggested I use FTP instead, which I did. It was stable for the next few weeks and I was able to get my mirroring done nicely. However, recently it started to give me problems again. The mirroring took extra-ordinarily long to complete... 4hrs, 5hrs when it used to be 1-2hrs at most.
Just wondering if anyone out there faces the same problem as I do and if yes, how did you resolve it?
