Win95/TCPIP clients drop network drives

Windows 95 clients (using only TCP/IP) logon to an NT domain and map network drives. Then after inactivity these mapped drives drop the connection, when the user double clicks on the network drive icon in My Computer they cannot connect until they map a drive manually (then all the previously mapped drives become available). Network drives are being shared by a Windows NT Server v.4.0 SP2 running IIS 3.0 and SQL Server 6.5.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem?

Thanks, Dave
