Will setting the first_watchdog_packet to 5 on a SLES OES server cause it to send tcp keep-alive packets every five minutes (just as it does on a NetWare server)? If so, then why aren't my SLES servers sending out tcp keep-alive packets? If not, then how do I get my SLES servers to start sending out tcp keep-alive packets?

I have had the First_Watchdog_Packet set to 5 on both NetWare and SLES. According to Marcel Cox (a poster on this forum) but not according to the latest Novell documentation this should result in keep-alive packets sent from my SLES servers every five minutes.
