Yes. It would be nice if RDP had an Eclipse background job which would keep the connection to the various host servers alive (which BTW is really simple to code, )

Subject: [WDSCI-L] RDP Won't give up

Has anyone found a good reliable way to get RDP to give up quickly on
connections that aren't going anywhere?

One of the systems I connect to regularly (actually two of them) time
out the remote connections - but of course RDP doesn't get notified.
So when unwittingly I try to do something it spins its wheels forever
before it will fail. Even canceling the request with the little red
button seems to have no effect most of the time. It has just done it
to me again and it took over 5 minutes for it to "notice" and issue an
error message.

By the way - this isn't a new problem - WDSC and RDi had it too. I had
hoped that when the cancel button became available it would cure the
problem but no such luck.
