Time out in Connection established state

Hi All,

I have a doubt regarding the TCP state machine handling.
When the connection is in ESTABLISHED state ( After Three way Hand-Shake) and no data is flowing on that connection, for how much time, will that connection be in that state.
Will it remain in that state forever ? If no, to which state it will be moved?

Is this time out documented somewhere in Linux source code.(Is there any way to know the timeout)
Is the time out different for each application like FTP,Telnet etc or same for all TCP Connections?
