I am largely a novice when it comes to Windows-95, so please bear
I have a PC parked on our company's LAN, and I am attempting to
telnet into an internal UNIX server. Normally, back when I had an X
terminal in my cube, I would leave these sessions running for days at a
time. However, on the PC, something is causing the sessions to
spontaneously disconnect, which means I have to log back in and re-establish
I've looked at every menu in the telnet clients I have for some
option that would keep connections active. Nothing. Even a copy of eXceed,
a X server, also drops xterm sessions after a period of inactivity, even
when I've checked the "keep alive" option. Telnet sessions opened on my
Amiga to the exact same UNIX server stay alive for weeks, so I doubt it's
the server doing it.
I have looked and looked and looked for some configuration option in
Windows itself that would cause it to break idle TCP/IP connections, but I
can't find it. Does it exist? Where is it and how do I turn it *off*? If
I have to keep restarting my telnet sessions every morning, then living with
this PC is going to be very irritating.
My sincerest thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
