Thanks. I missed it, as I stopped reading at 'DO NOT USE THIS OPTION.'

That timeout setting is a client side setting, not a server setting.
It simply tells the client how long to wait for a response from the
server when trying to connect(to the server) before giving a connection

Read the paragraphs just below that setting(related to
DummyPacketInterval). That should give you your answer. By default it's
set to 2 hours.
