Modem disconnected if it stayed idle for 15 minutes

I did test at my work, I have got a 2600 router with external modem connected to the router via auxiliary port (not serial interface),in one department, and My laptop with internal modem in another department.

I tried to access the 2600 router via laptop’s modem , I was able to access the router.

But if the router’s modem stayed idle for 15 minutes it disconnected the session.

Do I need to add additional configuration (script) in order to prevent this disconnection ?

I configured router’s modem like this:

Router2600 # configure terminal

Router2600 (config)# line 65

Router2600 (config-terminal)# modem autocnfigure discovery

Hello,

you could try and configure the 'dialer idle-timeout' under the async interface corresponding to your AUX port. If you set the timeout to 0, the line will not disconnect at all.

HTH,

Thanks gpauwen.

I tried this command :

exec-timeout 0 0------> It worked fine.
