Yes,  I change the timeout in the IIS and was handled the problem

This appears to be an IIS timeout, rather than FoxWeb.  The system log errors indicate that IIS stopped the script after foxweb.exe did not respond for 5 minutes.
By the way, the FoxWeb Script Timeout does not even come into effect here.  FoxWeb does not call the script until the POST data is completely uploaded from the browser.  In this case, the data takes longer than 5 minutes to upload, so the script does not even start.

thanks for your faster answer, I are very glad of your service
I also try locally, the diference is that I can upload more mb, but sounds like a 5 minuts is the limit and foxweb ignore the Script Timeout to 999 secs, the session timeout to 20 min. and my costomer use and 56kb modem and need to upload 4mb files most times
I also add this code to the upload program
Session.Timeout = 17
The foxweb control center doesnt show any error in the error log
the fwstart.log  doesnt show any error in the error log
I find this error in ths system log in Win2k

The script started from the URL '/cgi-bin/foxweb.exe' with parameters '' has not responded within the configured timeout period. The HTTP server is terminating the script.

Do you get a similar problem when you try uploading a file from another browser with a faster connection, or does the problem only occur from the slower connection?  In my calculations, it would take about 8 minutes to upload a 2MB file to a server over a 33 kbps connection.
What is the exact error message that you receive in the browser when the upload fails?  If possible paste the return page in a post, or email us a screen capture.

Hi, I just upgrade my version from 2.11 to 2.5 to solve that problem, y set the Script Timeout to 200 secs, the session timeout to 20 min. and still having the problem, after 5 minuts, the browser return an error page, I are using a Windows 2000 server english version, the problem was that I develop a webmail for one of my customers and finish 3 weeks ago, and the customer can not upload more than 2 mb files with a modem to attach to an email.
