I have a visual basic 6 that relies on internet connectivity.  We use it to time races (5k, marathon, triathlon, etc).  I use the following connection string to my server:

srvr_conn.Open "Provider=SQLNCLI10;Server=216.185.199.1,1433\SQLExpress;Database=db;Uid=uid;Pwd=pwd;"

How long will this connection stay open?  Is that a server setting?

3. Your spid is not manually KILLed
4. The SQL Server does not shut down.
