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.


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.
