    VPN with Remote Desktop Interface

    The SonicWall 170 VPN works solidly and continuously. I can mount shared
    drives and see them. I can connect to one or another PC at the other
    end. I can use (1) FTP, (2) shared files and (3) mstsc.exe (remote
    desktop).

    However, if I do not run-something for a while the remote desktop boots
    me off. Has anyone else run into this?

    Apparently this is the way it is supposed to work!

    Many firewalls limit session/idle timers as part of what the firewall does..

    You can change the timeout on port 3389 (remote desktop).
