Keep alive connection
Posted on 2004-10-14
I need to make a small program, that will send a ping to a server once every 5 minutes or so , so it will keep a connection alive.
We run a pronto SCO server and users on a remote connection are getting lockups if they leave the console inactive for more then 10 minutes.
I need the program to start when windows starts and issue two 32 byte pings once every 5 minutes.
I am presuming this will help with the lockups, unless anyone knows of a better way to achieve this.
