Subject SO_KEEPALIVE socket... or TCP/IP theory...
Author Valentin Voev

If my (computer) server is connected into local network the inactive
connection is as default - 2 hours for all "firebird" connections via
local net.

If bring the server to my co-location company the time of inactive
connection becomes ~10 min.

Why the existence of a several servers between me and my server in the
second test influences of the socket connection?

Firebird 2.0.3 on Fedora 8.

Thank you!
