Browser timeouts

Some applications on the SEPEM server can take several minutes to run. In order to avoid browser timeouts, it is recommended to set the keep-alive value to at least ten minutes.


In Firefox, access to configuration settings is provided by typing about:config into the Location Bar (address bar) and pressing Enter. The parameter to be modified is network.http.keep-alive.

Internet Explorer

Changing the default value in Internet Explorer requires editing the registry. Please consult this article.


The Opera default setting appears to be no timeout. Please consult this page for more details.
