Hi, I have a software that is listening on a port for incoming messages. But about half of the time I receive a duplicate incomplete message followed by the full message. The sender claims that their records show only one full message was transmitted each time followed by an acknowledgment from my application so I'm thinking they are definitely not sending the duplicates. These duplicates seem to be truncated at random locations along the message so the ending is always missing so my application just discards them. But about a millisecond later I receive the full message anyway.
Does anyone know what would cause this behavior? I can provide more details about the system if that will help but all I know right now is its running Windows 2000 on a virtual server.
Thanks to anyone that can offer any ideas on what the problem might be.
