I have seen this as well with IIS4. One thing I did was turn off server to=
cleint keep alives. This resolved the problem for me. I also think=
apache on unix is better as a web server. IIS seems to have problems with=
quite a few things such as server side includes, configuring perl (unix=
doesn't need .pl or .cgi for a perl script to work). Try turning off=
sever to client keep alives on the root web server and make sure you apply=
this to all of your virtual web servers as well.

I hope this helps.

Also, why are you using war-ftp daemon? (someone likes tucows :) ).

IIS 4 already has an ftp server built in.

Did your files at least show a 0 byte size?
