[stunnel-users] Infinite client timeout

Hi all,
i'm a new user :)
I'm deploying stunnel into a big enterprise, so i have met a lot of 
interesting details about Stunnel :)

I have a little problem now:
a Stunnel channel connecting BEA Weblogic -> Oracle listener.
BEA has the BIG problem of _completely locking_ when the connection goes 
down: when the connection comes up again, bea doesn't work.
This is not an issue, because there's a keepalive feature that can be 
activated in BEA.

In a case, we _cannot_ activate the keepalive, so we must try to keep 
the BEA -> stunnel client conection open indefinitely. I think this must 
apply to the other parts of the connection, but i'm not sure (if the bea 
-> client connection remains active, the client then can renegotiate the 
connection without bea noticing it? and the server -> oracle connection?)

Ok, i'm a little confused here :)

Can you help me with this issue?

Bye, dario.
