Is there a Keep Alive feature for the Packet or Telnet connection? What time is the Keep Alive feature set for? Am I able to adjust it? I would like to set my own for 3 minutes. The node I connect to drops me off cause of inactivity, I think, and need to shorten the time to see if it fixes the issue.
Is there an easier method to check this problem out or a solid node on the internet for me to connect to, to make a determination on this? I am running a packet program called Spot, connecting to K3NC cluster and I do not have this problem. I have reason to suspect that when my Mac is Idle and the hard drive shuts it self down at night, cause I have it on 24-7, Rumlog may not like that. How ever during the contest this week-end it has NOT had the problem, so I have more a reason to believe it is eather the node or the Keep Alive time setting. On some nodes 5 minutes is a bit too long, I use to set VE7CC program to 3 min and had very few issues. Most of the time it was my connection to the internet or the nodes connection.
Setting Keep-A-Live to even 4 or 4.5 minutes would be good. Could be a CPU timing issue. Some clocks on some CPU's run faster or slower must be another Windows PC compiler issue thing.
For Rumlog I use K9USA or N9JR-2 nodes on the internet using Telnet.
