Subject RE: [Studio] Subsequent input of connection password
Date Thu, 04 May 2017 12:45:52 GMT
I have the same issue, and it only started happening when I switched to the latest release
of Apache Directory Studio.  When I was on version 2.0.0.v20150606-M9, I was able to enter
the master password once and it never asked for additional authentication after that.  Now
it requires me to re-authenticate literally every few minutes.

I would say it depends on your server configuration. If you keep the connection open for a
very long time, it's likely that the socket get automatically closed by the underlying OS.

Otherwise, there is no such thing as a connection timeout, beside the timeout we have when
a request is sent and the client is waiting for a response - but this timeout does not close
the connection, t just aborts the operation -.
