IP helper address? Keepalive?
Posted on 2003-02-19
I have a network(a) connected to network(b) using a frame relay. There is a cisco 1750 on each end of the frame. The question is - when I have computers that have mapped a drive(s) going either way, the connection for the mapped drives seems to lose its connection after a period of time. We have reboot the computer in order to reconnect the mapped drive. Does anyone know what causes this? I have data from a unix box that runs continuously and never has a problem (of course it is not a mapped drive - it is a tcp/ip connection) it works great. I need to map drives for some windows applications to run over the frame. Will a IP help address help? Keepalive? Any help would be appreciated.
