Ftp.exe –  Netout :Connection reset by peer :FIX

When using the Windows XP Firewall several of our users encountered the following error when using ftp.exe:

 

> Netout :Connection reset by peer Connection closed by remote host.

 

Initially we tried creating exceptions for this application, but this proved inaffective.

 

The solution was to increase the  FTP Buffer window using the follwoing command:

 

ftp.exe -w:12288

 

This increases the FTP buffer from 4MB to 12MB – the FTP process is significantly faster and does not drop out with the above error.
