ADO Connection Time-Out Length

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As long as you
1. Do not close it,
2. The connection object does not go out of scope
3. Your spid is not manually KILLed
4. The SQL Server does not shut down.
