Refreshing the client browser

issue: IE 5.5 client gets Time out error after 5 min,when running a lengthy Oracle report is generated.

env: 3 tier:

2k client/w/IE 5.5, Oracle 9ias application server (Which uses Apache), Oracle database 9i backend
We can change the timeout registry key on the client to verify that the report actually runs, but this is not an option.

Is there a setting in the Appache server to keep refreshing the client browser (to indicate that is still processing) so the client browser does not time out?

Change the settings of your Apache httpd.conf file :

KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 15

Instead of 100 max connections of 15" each, you could put something like

KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 10
KeepAliveTimeout 600

For 10 minutes max ...
Beware that the MaxKeepAliveRequests prevents too many connections to take your server strength for a too long time.
If your sever in in an intranet, you should not worry too much about users abusing the large keep alive timout though.
