I have a vendor that is suggesting I change the TCPIP keepalive value from 120
to 2 minutes so that their application can discover and recover from a
comm./server failure better.  It is a TCPIP connection to an NT system and the
software does not recover gracefully whenever the NT system is rebooted (oh that
never happens).....

Any opinions? Showing my ignorance, is there a better way to determine if a
remote device has stopped communicating?  I'm not making this change without
some comfort level because this seems like a pretty drastic change.....
