XP Pro Remote Desktop Timeout after 5 min Does not happen on XP Home,

Ok been working on this one for a bit the box is a new box running xp pro, in a office with 8 other computers all the other computers are running xp home (They were allready in place) user can connect to remote desktop with the other computer which is in CA and he is in MO if he is not active in the remote desktop in 5 min it logs him out and he has to log back in. This is very annoying for him as he is using this a lot. I have set a setting in group policy in terminal services for 3 min ping to keep it alive and that has not helped at all.
He has checked with the it at the other end and everything is set fine and they dont know what the problem is. The office in on a ADSL connection.
Thanks
Mike

Hi mikebesurfing,

does the xp pro machine belong to a domain at all?

Cheers!

check the local policy on the machine

start - run - gpedit.msc

computer config - windows components- terminal services - sessions -

have a look at your config under there, is anything configured?

The only thing that is configured in the Local Policy is keep-alive connections which is set on enable 3 min.

Is there another setting in there that would help this.

set time limit for active but idle terminal services sessions   -  make it something huge and see how you go

also change that keep alive to something higher

Ok I had not posted anything in a bit, I think I have the problem solved will double check on Tuesday but its seems that it was a hardware problem the guy on the end that he was connecting to said it might be I had him hook up a usb to network adapter and it seems to work fine.
Will post for sure on Tuesday.
Thanks
