Hi all,

I would agree with the need to have a continual setting for the VC. What 
may work better is to have the time-out setting something that is 
something set on the Venue Server instead of the client. We are looking 
at having extended sessions also and if there is a time out on the VC 
then we will have to find a workaround.
