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:
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.
