Keep Connected


If a Windows NT Lotus Notes client fails to connect or continually drops
connections to a database: the client time-out value may need to be increased to
maintain a dormant connection. This tends to happen to Lotus Notes clients when
there is no activity on the network connection. This is also true for net
shares. The default is 10 minutes (600secs). Its not a big issue except for
Notes clients but you can reduce some network traffic (awakening dormant
connections), if you lengthen the KeepConn period.
