In my (admittedly limited) experience, when this is true, the "some
reason" always has something to do with fragmentation.  Sometimes one
machine can't receive the back-to-back packets the other is sending.
Sometimes it mostly works but certain files hang, and it's because one
machine is sending a tiny packet the other can't receive.  Sometimes
non-first frags don't get handled properly by something in between the
client and server.  But, if this helps and you want to fix the problem
instead of just papering over the symptom (sometimes the one is more
appropriate, sometimes the other), I'd recommend looking at
fragmentation-related issues.
