RE: red hat firewall question



Well yes, I could ask all of our clients to do that with each of their
programs, or I could just do it once time on the Red Hat box and it will
take care of everything. As you can see it'll be much easier to do it on
just the one Red Hat box.

My problem is that I cannot find enough documentation on the keep
alives/state for ipfilter. I'm still searching...

Thanks for the help. -Anne

Sorry, didn't realize that there were external forces (firewall) in play
here.  Might there be a better solution from the client side?  We have FW
issues like that here(our timeouts are 20 minutes) and we mitigate it by
turning on "keep alives" in the putty, DB client, etc.
