Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\RemoteAccess\Parameters
Name: AutoDisconnect
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 0-1000 minutes
Sets the time interval after which inactive connections are terminated. Inactivity is measured by lack of NetBIOS session data transfer, such as copying files, accessing network resources, and sending and receiving electronic mail. You might want to set this parameter to 0 minutes if clients are running NetBIOS datagram applications. Setting this parameter to 0 turns off AutoDisconnect. Default=20 minutes.
