The host server jobs don't time out on my systems. The only job that gets
killed by the inactivity timers is the connection job. Having the job
status display refresh every 30 minutes resets the inactivity timers, so the
connection job stays up.

Besides, you can argue about whether it should work all you want - I've
tried it, and it solves my specific problem, which I believe is the same
problem Jon stated originally. Granted it's a work-around and not ideal,
but it's better than having to reconnect 2 or 3 times a day.

And that is the point where I think that you are wrong. There is more than
one job for a connection. Why do you think there are multiple host servers
running for receiving the different connection requests?

My assumption is also based on the fact that you have to specify the
service type on the API com.ibm.as400.access.AS400.getJobs(int type) like

AS400 system = new AS400();
Job[] jobs = system.getJobs(AS400.COMMAND);

The API even supports multiple jobs for the same service type so you might
even have to "ping" all jobs (though I never encountered more than one
