      Tony, I believe the disconnect timer is hard coded in the chat server.

      Sent from a smartphone.  Owner makes typo's for sure.

      Thanks for the clue on editing the telnet config. That works now.

      Some more questions on the chat server. Ive found that after 7200 seconds or 2 hrs that you are forcibly disconnected from the server. This may well be a function of the Node connection rather than the Chat server. I have Keepalive enabled and this is working.
      I can not see where abouts in the configs that 2 hrs or 7200 seconds comes into play that it would disconnect.
      Any ideas ?
      Also is there a way that I can arrange for users to connect directly into the chat server on login to the node without having to type "chat" ? That would be a handy thing.
      Ive been using BPQ32 for years but never played with these features really.
