Adjustment “KeepAliveTime“

Avoid Possible Connection Interruptions to the windream Server during Runtime

During a longer idle time (for example of more than one hour), the connection between a client and a windream Server may be interrupted.

To avoid this situation, an entry in the Windows registry can be changed. The change will effect a reduction of the so called “KeepAliveTime“. This time specification (in milliseconds) determines how often the TCP-IP service sends so called “KeepAlive“ signals, which make sure that the con-nection will not be interrupted even after a longer idle time.

The registry entry of the type “REG_DWORD“ can be found under the key

[HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters]KeepAliveTime = 1,800,000 (dez)

(Here, for example, 30 minutes, indicated in milliseconds).

The KeepAliveTime can be adjusted by changing the value. For further information on the mean-ing of this registry entry, please refer to the Microsoft Technet under the following Link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc957549.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396
