  • Issue(s) Resolved
    • Prevents the channel between the service and the client application to drop after default timespan ( 10 minutes ) has elapsed.  Due to this default setting in channel, ADCE users who disconnect from the network for more than 10 minutes may not see all the notifications because the channel is dropped. The fix sends a "Hello" message from the service to the client every few service cycles ( default is 6 ) i.e. 180 seconds to keep the channel alive. For further details, refer to Microsoft's article on Binding.ReceiveTimeout Property
