Dial In Time

By stngfan1 ·
I have remote users that dial into a shiva unit, we want to disconnect them if they are idle too long. However the idle time never seems to advance to anything longer than one minute.

The shiva unit has a disconnect if idle for 15 min. But it never reaches that amount of time. I was testing this with a laptop with no other software running.

I also don't want to set it to one minute either, since this will cut off too many people.

We are using Novell 4.11, IPX/SPX and TCP/IP, and a frame type of 802.3.

Because Ethernet is a broadcast protocal, is this way the idle time doesn't advance?

Thanks
TM

I am not sure about this, for i haven't dealt with Novell in a while. If i remember correctly, every 60 seconds, Novell servers send a broadcast to advertise their services to all workstations (SAP i think it's called). There may be a similar broadcast at the workstation level. That would be enought for your idle to stop. We use Shiva here, but strickly on a TCP/IP protocol and the timeout reach the full 15 mins.
