We are trying to initiate a replication on a windows 2003 server standard edition SP2 running, the replication is halting at 1% copying data and it hangs there . The logs sending files logs show no major errors, it shows generating VSS snapshot and then copying it into a folder. THe receiving files logs show continuous TCP time out errors.

When we try to RDP into the servers, we are unable to, as we are not getting any login prompt. The same happens even after we reboot the server and initiate the replication again.

Please help us in this issue.
