Does anyone know the default setting for a local client to lose connection to server after a period of inactivity? Got a gut that goes 3 - 4 hours without using computer and server connection is gone when he trys. He has to reboot to regain connection.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are you referring to an application connection or a LAN connection? If the LAN connection times out or loses connectivity, it could be a DHCP issue or an issue with either the client NIC or the LAN switch port. If this is an application disconnect problem, you need to provide more information about the specific application and client/server OS version(s). Some applications simply have timeout settings for inactive sessions. This is not a function of the client but is a feature of the application and its configuration.

    I am referring to the LAN connection. Where do you think I should start?

    Check the computer power settings. Be sure the computer does not go into standby or shutdown mode. Check the LAN switch port. Try another computer on the same LAN switch port and see if the problem exists. Check DHCP lease times for this computer. Increase the lease times if possible. Check the computer NIC and update drivers. Let us know if these steps do not help.
