Browser closing down too soon.
11/01/2019 10:19
Can anyone help, please ? Using RISC OS 4.02, StrongArm, DialUp 3.13, Hermes, Newshound, Pluto 3.04c, Fresco or Netsurf. Connecting through ClaraNet.

When online, mail and news items download correctly and connection stays online until expiry time of 5 minutes without use.

Either browser downloads web pages but disconnects after about 1 minute of inactivity (often not long enough to read the downloaded material and decide on next link to try) I can't find the box to enter a time to control this but feel there should be something somewhere.

TIA John

The ISP says it is not at their end and the log in DialUp only contains logging on and off times. In Hermes, Choices, I have now set the 'Quit after transfer button to 'No' and this seems to have effected an improvement although there has been one instance of disconnection (which I had not timed.) It looks as though I should keep some timing notes in order to see if the improvement is reliable. I have not found a way of setting email to download sufficiently regularly.

Thanks for your help, John

Hermes on the icon bar, select 'menu', select 'Mail accounts', Hermes accounts window opens with 'Emailboxes to fetch' button active, select my email address and select right hand side 'Edit' button.

'Edit POP account' window opens but I can see no Automatically fetch every....... setting.

Tell me what I am doing wrong.....

It is a dialogue called 'Disconnect after idle for ... minutes'.

Perhaps it is this which is set to too low a value.

The facility described is in Hermes 1.20 which I believe R-Comp are planning to release in the next few days.

Does DialUp have any log files which may indicate the cause of the disconnects? It would be a good exercise to find the cause, but as a work around you could always set email to download sufficently regularly.

Thanks for the info, Alan, in the meantime would it be worth trying a completely new installation of Dialup and Hermes in order to bypass whatever it is that I have inadvertently altered at some time over the last month or so? John

In Hermes, open the mail accounts window, open the editing window for a POP account, go to the Advanced tab and set the Automatically fetch every... setting to a suitable value.
