Having problem with connecting to server while downloading some file from the same server.

P: n/a
Hi,
My dot net client downloads files and checks for any new files time to
time. The server is apache2.0.53 server. So what happens is that my
file download thing works fine if I dont try to call any page from the
server while downloading. If I try to call a single page while
downloading a file then the page request goes time out and the server
then closes the existing download stream and the client doestn't throw
any exception. So many a time I end up with incomplete downloaded file.
The server side code is in PHP and every thing like calling a page or
downloading a file is done by calling some PHP script.

What is the reason behind this type of behaviour.
Thanx.

Some HTTP servers restrict the number of concurrent connections from the
same source, particularly when downloading files. This is to prevent
individuals from hogging bandwidth.

This may be the cause of your problem (or may not).
