Re: Conserver 8.x on Solaris 8...

Many thanks to all those who responded. All were right in saying that the likely culprit was our Cisco terminal servers timing-out the connections after five minutes... I'm not yet sure whether our Network colleagues have changed anything, but I'm almost certain that Conserver 7.x was somewhat less sensitive to this? I certainly don't recall the logs being full of reconnection messages? Could be wrong...

Thanks Again,

Every five minutes each Conserver daemon wakes up and reports the following for each console in its group... The same behaviour has been observed with older versions of Conserver 8...

looks like the terminal server is timing out the console connections.
i know some have default idle-timeouts that disconnect clients after a
certain amount of inactivity.  and, then again, others can be set that
way.  that's my guess...a 5 minute idle-timeout.
