Hmm, the timeout problem reminds me of another similar networking problem I have seen on W2000 (described in another posting). I would be very interested to hear if the fix described below has any influence on this behaviour. Could one of you who see this problem kindly apply the fix and report back the result? Fix description: Open RegEdit and go to key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\lanmanserver\parameters There is a DWORD item named 'autodisconnect' which has a default value of 15 (minutes). If you change this to say 60 and restart your machine I wonder if the reported time until the disconnect happens is increased to 60 minutes? Really the easiest way to test it may be to *reduce* the time in the registry to 3 or so and then wait for 4-5 minutes before a renewed test is done. I have not been able to lay my hands on a machine with these kinds of connection problems so I could test the fix, therefore I am very interested to hear from any of you which result you get. Of course if the parameter value is controlling the named pipe disconnect time then it should be set to a very high value. /Bo On Thu, 11 Apr 2002 10:26:38 +0000 (UTC), "Anthony Williams" <anthwil at nortelnetworks.com> wrote: >I am using build 57 of cvsnt on windows 2000.
