    I have a problem disconnecting from TELNET sessions. I've tried a few different TELNET clients and have had the same problem with all of them.

    I can connect fine, and complete all the work I need to during the session. When I attempt to end the session however, the session freezes without fully exiting. If I turn off the firewall portion of ESS the session exits as normal.

    I've created a rule in the firewall allowing any and all activity for the client applications (and enabled all logging of all activity) but that hasn't made any difference. I've also tried to toggle all of the firewall settings, but nothing has made a difference.

    What is frustrating is that the log contains no information of what's happening.

    Anyone have an idea of what's happening?

    A new version of the firewall module will bring a new option to maintain inactive TCP connections, I assume that enabling it will resolve your problem.

    The firewall module will be updated automatically within a few weeks, it's being tested right now.

    I can't seem to find that option anywhere. Can you please point it out?

    Thanks
