You are still not telling us what the server says during the dialogue
with -d2. Since it is the server that is breaking off, we need to see
where it is happening.

Ok. Guess that's not the whole story then.

Might be a name lookup issue. Please send the cfservd -d2 output  from
the dialogue.

You are better off understanding the mechanism. This will allow you to
do more than just copy files around.
