C#-HTTPListener: Best way to handle idle connections

P: 71
Having a multiple client/server using a C# httplistener/httpwebrequest to transfer message.

How should I handle idle connections?
Will it be the job of the server or client?
Does using a ping mechanism effective?
Please suggest others ways..

My idea as of now is this: =httpwebrequest

setting the timeout explicitly.

I would think the Server should certainly be handling Idle connections.
Depending on how you talk to the Clients, it would probably be curtious to send the Client that is connected some sort of "hey you are idle, I am closing your connection" and then close the connection.
