Adjusting the Client Connection Timeout for HP-UX

Display or change the current timeout period.

  1. To display the current timeout period, enter:
    /ndd -get/set /dev/tcp tcp_keepalive_interval

    The tcp_keepalive_interval parameter specifies the length of time (measured in seconds) to keep an idle connection active before the system checks to see if the connection died.

  2. Use the nettune -s or ndd -set commands to change the timeout period.
