I noticed a 'Keepalive packets every x seconds' in webmin.  is that what
your after?  (he said without knowing squat really, i'm still just learning
too), under unix networking options...

I have a samba server joined to a Win 2000 domain.

It all works fine except that for some reason if a Win2KPro client has a
file/folder open overnight (or for a long time), then they are disconnected.

I can't find a relevant timeout setting when browsing through swat.

Anyone got any ideas?
