{Subject: [Samba] Win2K Workstation Disconnecting Shares from Samba
{I have a Linux Server running Debian Testing (2.4.18
{kernel) and Samba 2.2.3a-12.1
{It's been running GREAT.  This is a marvelous product.
{I have a minor issue, though.
{2 of the 14 Win2K (all at SP3 and fully "Windows
{Updated") will "disconnect" the shares on the Samba
{server after only a few seconds of inactivity.  This
{isn't typically a problem, except that with a few
{software packages (AutoCad, PhotoShop, Illustrator),
{attempts to resave a file generate a "file not found"
{error and bring up the Save As dialog.  They can then
{navigate to the original shared directory and save,
{but it's a hassle.
{I've got to believe it's an obscure client setting on
{the Win2K boxes, but I can't find anything about it.
{All the shares on all 14 workstations are made via a
{login.bat, so these 2 workstations aren't mapping
{anything differently from the other 12.
