Where do I configure TS Keep Alive settings W2K8

Are Keep Alive settings intended to be set at the workstation or the TS?

In W2K3, Keep Alive is available in AD GPO, while on the W2K8 TS server, there are no settings within the Local GPO (computer/user configuration) to be configured.  Then looking at my Windows XP workstation, I "CAN" set the Keep Alive settings in the Local GPO.

I have a Windows 2008 TS server that is dropping "SOME" client connections that travel across the Internet to get to the Hosted environment.  Do I set the Keep Alive in the workstation Local GPO, or do I "ADD" the Keep Alive registry key(s) to the TS "since I am unable to configure" in the Local GPO of the Terminal server?

I found instruction for adding Keep Alive, Keep Alive Time and Keep Alive Interval, but was not sure this is intended for W2K8????

You should be able to use the 2008 GPO: Computer configuration | administrative templates | Windows components | Terminal server | Connections | Configure keep alive connection interval

I would also recommend enabling: Computer configuration | administrative templates | Windows components | Terminal server | Connections | Restrict terminal services users to a single remote session

This should keep the session alive and if a temporary disconnection happens, reconnect the user to the same session.
