Maybe the result is from connection timeout. The firewall can drop the packets if there is no activity for certain delay of time.

Check for ftp patches as well with the another ftp server/client.

Re: ftp - broken pipe

if you could down the file to your desktop / than ftp to your target server, using any ftp GUI based client have the option to increase the TIME OUT settings,

Thanks,

Hi,

My suggestion is check all below settings.

1.NIC card both server's speed/duplex
2.Check switch ports settings between this two servers speed/duplex.

Server NIC and there respective switch port setting should be same.
