Hi - I occasionally have burps in my internet feed, where the connection is lost for a short time.

The other software I use has long enough timeout values to where it's pretty much unaffected; when the feed resumes, those apps update and move right along.

PhX, however, apparently has a really short timeout value and it blows up and sometimes restarts and sometimes just goes bye-bye, requiring a full restart of PhX.

So, how about either upping the time out period for PhX or, better yet, letting the user set the value?

Oh, and btw, if you all would be willing to do a one-on-one, if you'd show me where to patch the current PhX code I'm running to jack up the value, that'd work fine for now

Hello AMA,
There are a variety of things that can cause 'internet burps' and the Prophet X connection can have different responses depending on the cause.
Would it be possible to have you send a screen shot of your System Alert messages you get when this occurs as well as a screen shot of your Help and About Prophet X window to prophetx@dtn.com so we can get a better idea of what may be happening with your connection?
Also, I am not aware of any settings available to adjust the time-out period. However, I will check with our development team to be certain and let you know if such exists.

Will do. May be a while, tho, as I never know when this'll pop up again, and it'll have to be at a time where I can spare a few minutes to gather the info you requested.
