KDE desktop sharing and connect timeout

I'm using the KDE 3.1 (Redhat 9) desktop sharing feature (which is very nicely integrated) - and on my WindowsXP machine I'm using TightVNC viewer to connect to the Redhat machine.

It works well - reasonable performance, OK feature set.

The only thing I don't like about it is the timeout disconnect. If I don't do anything in the viewer after 60 or so seconds, it automatically disconnects. I assume this is a feature, because using the TightVNC viewer from a Linux box to another Linux box does the same thing.

I am on a secure network, and I don't want the connection to timeout ever. I've searched the KDE website for info - but found nothing.

Any ideas/help for how to avoid the auto-disconnect?

I think you will want to look at the TightVNC configuration, not kde....

check the TightVNC docs

thanks - but I've checked the TightVNC and VNC docs - I must be missing something...
