Ive found this old thread

I am using MUSHClient 5.06

I started having connection issues after I was forced to change ISP, which nessecited a new cable modem. I have completely no idea of how to configure it.

Its quite frustrating to frequently lose connection to the server. Ive been experimenting with timer commands to no avail and why I went looking for dedicated keepalive commands.

But the commands supplied on the old page gives errors. Is there any more up todate?
Both commands below as seen on the page is not working for me and gives the same error.
/SetOption ("send_keep_alives", 1)
print ("keep alives =", GetOption ("send_keep_alives"))

Its danish and says:
Parentheses cannot be used when calling a Sub

Seems setting a timer to 2minutes did the trick.

My previous attempts had been with 5minute timers and those did just not work.

Ive had my characters active for hours without any DC issues with the 2minute timers.

Good to know.

ISPs are probably keen to drop connections that seem "inactive" to them. Web browser accesses are all self-contained, so terminate quickly. Also, downloads would be continuous activity. Thus, they probably think if "nothing has happened" for a couple of minutes, that you don't want the connection any more.
