Problem with anti-idle

I have tried several suggested methods to stop servers from timing out when connected and idle. The only way I could find so far is to send a carriage return string before the server times out.

Now the question. When does SecureCRT send the anti-idle string ?

Sending a carriage return in the middle of typing commands can be a really major problem.

Hi cr1275,

SecureCRT sends the string at the end of each interval that is configured for the session.

The Anti-idle interval is reset immediately after the last activity where activity is defined as any time data is sent or received. This should prevent the problem of a carriage return being sent while you are typing or receiving data from the remote.

If you are worried about typing a partial command, that if executed might have bad consequences, and being called away for longer than the Anti-idle interval, then you may want to modify your Anti-idle string to clear the line prior to sending the carriage return. For example, in a UNIX shell, you could send the following:
Does this help to answer your question?
