Set the number of seconds an ECP connection stays in troubled state.


[ECP]   ServerTroubleDuration=n

n is an integer in the range 20—65,636 (seconds). The default value is 60.


ServerTroubleDuration is the number of seconds an ECP connection stays in a troubled state. Once this period of time has elapsed, the Data Server (ECP server) declares the connection dead and presumes that recovery is not possible.

Changing This Parameter

On the ECP Settings page of the Management Portal (System Administration > Configuration > Connectivity > ECP Settings), in the This System as an ECP Data Server column, edit Time interval for Troubled state.

Instead of using the Management Portal, you can change ServerTroubleDuration in the Config.ECPOpens in a new tab class (as described in the class reference) or by editing the CPF in a text editor (as described in Editing the Active CPF).
