when i connect via telnet to another host i found that i will dropped
out after ca. 1 hour. I read some weeks ago that the linux telnet
(given in the slackware 1.1.1 package) uses the an envrionment vriable and
manages the duration by itself.
the problem is that i can't remember the text and how to change the
time out for the telnet connection to void drop outs.
for hints i would be very glad
