When Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) replication runs on a Windows 2000-based computer, it may not run successfully and the following events may appear in the Event Viewer:
Event Source: aic78xx Event ID: 9 Description: The device, \Device\Scsi\aic78xx1, did not respond within the timeout period.
Event ID: 4102 Source: WINS Description: The connection was aborted by the remote client.


This behavior can occur when the events are logged in the precise code location where the receiving side of a TCP connection stops receiving data, leaving the connection open. This causes the sender side to fill up the TCP window and eventually stop responding in the send call.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
