I am current having an issue of large file download in SharePoint (WSS 3.0). It only occur for large files (i.e. 300MB). When I click on a file to download I don't get a dialog prompting me to save the file.

IE shows 'Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage'. Firefox shows 'Connection interrupted. The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The network link was interrupted while negotiating a connection. Please try again'.

In SharePoint log file, I found the error message 'w3wp.exe (0x060C) 0x0EE8 Windows SharePoint Services General 8dzz High Exception Type: System.Web.HttpException Exception Message: The remote host closed the connection. The error code is 0x80072746'.

I am new in this field and need this one to be solved asap due to business reason. Can anyone knows how to solve it reply my post with solution? Maybe I need to do something in IIS or some configuration?

Thanks in advance. Appreciate it!

If you are using file upload control then you can't upload files having size more than 4 mb.If you want to increase size limit make these changes in web.config file

    <httpRuntime maxRequestLength="22000"//depends on the size executionTimeout="300"//max time to excute this request></httpRuntime>
