[archive] AcuThin v6.0 losses connection with server when idle for a time

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 19 April 2004]

Acuthin connected via a static IP address over an ADSL line. When my application is left idle for a time, e.g. accept screen, the ADSL line closes down disconnecting the application from the server. I am told that Acuthin does not keep constant communication with the Acurcl and as we are not using VPN, it will disconnect, when the ADSL line goes to sleep!.

Has anyone got a neat solution?

Ideally I would like a neat way to program my application to constantly keep in touch with the server, even while the app is waiting for the user, who has gone to lunch, to complete screen input.
