The hello-timeout parameter for netconfd-pro specifies

the number of seconds that a session may exist before

the hello PDU is received. A session will be dropped if

no hello PDU is received before this number of seconds

elapses.


If this parameter is set to zero, then the server will wait
forever for a hello  message, and not drop any sessions
stuck in "hello-wait" state.

Setting this parameter to zero may permit denial of service
attacks, since only a limited number of concurrent sessions
are supported by the server. (range 0 | 10 ..  3600). 
The default value is 600 seconds (10 minutes).


The hello-timeout parameter can be invoked via the

command line:


user@system>netconfd-pro --hello-timeout=number


or configured in the /etc/yumapro/netconfd-pro.conf file:


#### leaf hello-timeout
#
#  Specifies the number of seconds that a session
#  may exist before the hello PDU is received.
#  range 0 | 10 .. 3600; 0 == no timeout used
#
# hello-timeout 600
