From: GarDavis on
We just installed Windows Server 2003 SP1 and also Framework 2.0 and
now are seeing this message in the event log every minute or so:

The state server has closed an expired TCP/IP connection. The IP
address of the client is The expired Read operation began at
11/16/2005 14:31:49.

This happened on all four of our web servers. One of the servers
stopped reporting the event this morning for several hours and then
started up again.

I assume the Framework 2.0 install (side-by-side with 1.1) replaced the
State Server. The event ID mentions Source ASP.NET 2.0.50727.0.

I am aware of this KB:;EN-US;308097 but
have not tried its recommendation (increasing the timeout) since this
seems to be related to 2.0 and not 1.1.
