Nikos,

Thank you so much! The value is not in seconds but in milliseconds (wierd?). I set it 
to 10000 ms
which gave me a 10 second timeout however this is system-wide and I dont want to break 
things.

Does anyone know how to do it for just this specific telnet session? Perhaps there's a 
keepinit
rule in ipfw. Any ideas? Tia

Holt
