Odd problem with PowerPoint files

cPanel wouldn't help me much on this oddity.

One of my servers can't serve powerpoint files well for some reason. This means through either FTP or HTTP download. It'll just throttle or stick in attempting to download.

Has anyone had this weird problem before?

Could it have to do with some odd filtering system on the network? Cuz, man, Everything else downloads quickly BUT powerpoint files. And even I have changed the extention from test.ppt to test.doo -- same problem! I gzip it and it downloads just fine. It has to do with whatever is inside the headers. This makes me think it's some sort of problem in the network going out rather than the server.

Test:

Try the .ppt file, the .doo file (both are powerpoint files) and then the gzip. You'll see what I am talking about.

Ideas?

Yep..

It also does it with FTP transfers which could care less if it was any specific file.

Update: this does it with .doc files also (Word documents). could it be some system filtering or throttling on this on the network?
