X session timeouts due to Firewall
Posted on 2002-07-19
I'm using Exceed version 6.1. Currently our firewall times out inactive sessions after 20 minutes. I can't get this changed. So the result is, windows are going away after this time out, unless they are being used. Is there any other X-server implementation that allows a keep alive to be configured?
I use Putty telnet, and it has one and it works great.
With the Win32 Exceed, I thought I was on to something... I took the latest fvwm2 code, built it, and cloned the console module, called it FvwmIdle. I then changed it to sleep 10 minutes then do a 'refresh' all in a loop. I thought this might cause enough traffic to keep the sessions alive, but it did not seem to work.
Any pointers or ideas would be really appreciated.
