(I could not post to qdn.public.qnx4. so trying qdn.public.qnx4)
–Our configuration is:
We have a WIN95 box with Phindows connected to a QNX/Photon box cross a
The Phindows screen should show the original Photon screen over several
days or more.
QNX 4.25;Photon 1.14; TCP/IP for QNX4.25; Phindows 1.20 on a Win95 Box;
From time to time, there is no Network connection thru the network
between the 2 computers. This missing connection can last for several
minutes. After about 90 seconds, the Phrelay driver is shut down, and
the Phindows screen on the WIN box gets frozen (dead) without any
–What we tried out:
We tried to increase the timeout by means of the phrelay option <-T
idletime ,retries> in file </etc/inetd.conf> and activated a debug
output file with options <-VV –D filename>…
To break the TCP/IP connection, we unplugged the network connector on
the QNX box after the Phindows connection was established.
Our Phrelay line in inetd.conf is :
<phrelay stream tcp nowait root /usr/photon/bin/phrelay phrelay -VV -D
/usr/log “-T 2,2”>
We also tried <-T 10,10> and others. The effect is always similar: About
30 seconds after the connection is broken, the debug file shows about 5
or 10 timeout messages, and after about 85 seconds shutdown of the
connection is reported.
-How can the Phrelay timeout be increased to about 3 Minutes or more?
-Is the syntax of our Phrelay line in inetd.conf correct?
-Is it a problem of needing updates?
Thanks a lot for answers, Juergen.
