TCP is there a timeout?

Recommended Posts

I've got a tcp chat - a server and multiple clients

I've opened my client and was online but afk. after about 40 minutes i've tried to send a message but was dropped from the server.

I checked the server script - it was running. Is there some sort of limit for this?

The server is looped to recieve messages from each individual client and sends them back to all clients

The client is looped to recieve messages

$NewMessage = TCPRecv ($TCPConnect, 100000)

If @error Then

$error = @error

GUIDelete ()

MsgBox (16, "test", "Lost connection: "&$error)

TCPCloseSocket($TCPConnect)

Exit

EndIf

I get the message box that connection has been lost. The server is deffinitely running cos I can log on again.

How are you testing this connection?

Is it within your own LAN with only a Switch inbetween or is there a LAT router in the the path?

Maybe its your LAT router that timeout on the Session it has in its connection table. Are you sending Keep-Alives to indicate the session is still there?

You could try to run the script on 2 machines on your local LAN and see if that gives the same error.
