    Description

      For routers/firewalls that terminate idle connections, a separate heartbeat mechanism may need to be implemented to keep the control connection active.

      Some potential issues:

      • Synchronization between a heartbeat write and a __getReply() on an active control connection command;
      • Should use the NOOP command as a heartbeat signal;
      • Make the timeout configurable;
      • Default SocketImpl::setKeepAlive() wont do here.
