Help with Microsoft TCP/IP and FTP?

The Question is:

I am having problems putting a file on our FTP server.  Our server is running
 Windows NT 4.0 SP6.  The client is Alpha running TCPIP version 5.0A. Putting
 small files is no problem; when large files are tried, 3 megs and larger,
 after ten minutes the clie
nt aborts. The error message is 426 Connection closed; transfer aborted.  Gets,
 on the other hand work fine. Also, puts from DOS work fine. What could be
 causing this behavior?  TCPtrace shows that NT is not acking packets when a
 put is attempted.
Is the problem NT or the Alpha?

The Answer is :

  The OpenVMS Wizard would encourage you to reverse the client and server
  roles as a test, and see if this eliminates the problem you are seeing.
  Additional tests involve client and server operations with other IP
  stacks.  Alternatively, please contact a Microsoft Wizard for assistance
  with the TCP/IP Stack.
