We have a SBS 2008 service in the office. I work from home and connect to the domain workstations via Remote Web Workplace. I'm having several problems, but I'll see if I can deal with these one-by-one. First, my sessions time out all the time if I am not actually typing on the remote session. The timeout duration seems to vary, sometimes it seems like a minute or so, sometimes it seems to go 20 minutes or more. It does seem to time out quicker if the remote session screen is occluded by a local window.
How can I fix this to NEVER timeout?
I came across advice in this blog http://terminal.servebeer.com/php/flaky_connections.php
to create a registry DWORD KeepAliveEnable in HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControl
Server, and set it to 1. This blog was not dated and did not specify to which OS versions the advice applied. Digging deeper in the blog and links seemed to discuss WIN2000 and WINNT, old stuff. Nevertheless I tried this, but it didn't do anything. So, I removed the DWORD just in case it would end up doing bad things.
Please help solve. This is driving me crazy!
