Hey,
Since so many smart people are here I will ask smile

Recently I moved my UBB forums to a new server.
Load balanced with 2 servers.

Everything seemed perfectly fine.

Now when I upload a ZIP file it becomes corrupted and won't open. The file opens before I upload it -- Now the weirdness is other people seem to be able to upload ZIP files just fine.

Other file types I allow seem to work fine also.

So is there something that could be happening on my new host or a load balanced server set up that could be corrupting the files?

If you have any ideas on where to look on the host, or on my computer that would be great.

To make the zip files I am just using the build in windows zip feature.

Just for fun I am going to attach one here just to see if it uploads right.

Edit -- nope its bad also -- So what the hell is it on my computer or ISP causing this?
I use Comcast cable for my ISP.

Just as a side note

I turned off zlib compression on my forum and now my zip files are fine?
