Windows 2008 Server - unable to copy files from server to another machine; reverse works fine

    My Windows 2008 Server started acting up on me all of a sudden.

    Every time I try to copy a larger file from it to a network share on another
    machine, it freezes, reporting that the local file I am trying to copy
    cannot be found ("Item Not Found" error dialog", or that there is a network
    error accessing the local (!)file. Sometimes the copy works a bit at the
    beginning, then the speed crumbles to < 10KB/sec, and the errors pop up.
    All machines are in a Windows 2003 AD, the 2008 box is a workstation, not a
    dc server.

    I managed to disable all advanced tcp features (RSS, Chimney offload,
    receive windows tuning, congestion control), and now I can at least transfer
    files to a Windows 2003 server (slow; 4MB/sec). Transfering to vista x64
    (also with modified txp features) still doesn't work.

    What's funny is that going in the oposite direction - putting the files onto
    the windows 2008 server box - works without a hitch. From the Vista box it
    goes with cca. 11 MB/sec.

    Any hints on how to fix this? The 2008 Server is my primary development
    workstation and this is a *major* pain.

    Thanks & Best Regards,
