Do this in the head:
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="number_of_seconds; url=http://www.yoursite.com">

as far as I know, keep-alive, which controls the time-out, is set on the server, not in the client.

I don't recall anything about this since I never deal with it. Any registry values that affect this for IE won't affect any other browser perhaps.

I'm not sure if this would be a Windows or server questtion or if it belongs here.

This was posted for IE 4, but it still works in IE6. I haven't had the opportunity to test it with 7 so lets hope it still works there too. I have an app that copies data between two dbases and the default Internet Explorer timeout was way to small.

http://www.aegis.ca/docs/devtip3.htm

In case that link doesn't work, in the regeistry editor, go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Internet Settings

Add a DWORD named ReceiveTimeout. The value of ReceiveTimeout is a hex value of the number of milleseconds the browser will wait for a response from a Web server

Restart the computer.

If you are behind a proxy server, you'll have more hoops to jump through. Good luck.
