Time Wait interval

What is the time_wait interval for Solaris 8/9??? and is it configurable???

For example sometimes a clients pc will freeze up dropping the connection, closing the port. The problem is on our side our system still thinks their logged in (until it realizes it dropped on the otherside and drops on our side) and won't let them in until about 6-10 minutes later.


Is there a way to configure the time_wait interval to something shorter.

any info you can spare will be much appreciated


Thanks in advance

You'll find that some clients are rude and tend to ignore standards (such as MS Explorer). You want to reduce the amount of time a closing TCP circuit can stay in the TIME_WAIT state. Dropping these no longer active connections will free resources. On solaris:

ndd -set /dev/tcp tcp_time_wait_interval 60000

will set the TIME_WAIT limit to 60 seconds. You should take a look at: http://www.sean.de/Solaris/soltune.html for more information.

Cheers,

Keith
