    Question

    How do the timeouts for hostservice host1 & proxyservice proxy1 work within the stored proxy configs?

     

    Response

    The ConnectPro timers work together. The first timer that runs is the proxyservice proxy1 timeout, and once this timer has completed the second timer (hostservice host1) will begin.

     

    For example, when using the configuration below, after 4 minutes of inactivity the device would be kicked off the session. Then, 2 minutes after that, ConnectPro would terminate the session and the device would no longer be able to reconnect to the stored job.

     

    // This is the connection to the telnet/ssh host.

    hostservice host1

    connect 10.20.1.24:23

    ssh off

    timeout 2m

    // stationid-template "Display[ .]+:\s+(.+?)[ ]"

     

    // This is the connection to the telnet/ssh client.

    proxyservice proxy1

    server host1

    listen 0.0.0.0:4430

    timeout 4m
