A long time ago I fixed a mobilink sync fail problem, thanks to support, because the default time windows keeps a tcpip connection open, if the disconnect notice failed, was around 2 or 3 hours. There was a registry setting to change the time windows waits to force a disconnect but I can't remember what that was and I can't find it in my notes. Anyone know the setting?

Optional parameters that you can configure by using Registry Editor
Value Type: REG_DWORD - Time in milliseconds
Valid Range: 1 - 0xFFFFFFFF
Default: 7,200,000 (two hours)
Description: The parameter controls how frequently TCP tries to verify that an idle connection is still intact by sending a keepalive packet. If the remote computer is still reachable and functioning, the remote computer acknowledges the keepalive transmission. By default, keepalive packets are not sent. A program can turn on this feature on a connection.
