TCP/IP keepalive problem

I am working in IBM-AIX 5.3. We are having a server application, it is connected with a Client application in some other machine in the network.
If the network cable disconnected between these machines, my application is showing "Connected" status. It is not releasing the port connection. I checked the "admin" guide and i changed the below parameters, Still it is not released.
tcp_keepinit=20, tcp_keepintvl=10, tcp_keepidle=4
In netstat output also, It is showing "ESTABLISHED".
Can anybody tell why it is so. How can i solve this.

Why don't you implement a 'heartbeat' between the server and the client. When they loose the heartbeat they can disconnect.
