Kindle dumps Telnet connection after a minute.

I wrote a simple program that allows me to graphically Telnet into the Kindle's hidden partitions and Drag & Drop files where I want to.

My only problem is that the Kindle RE-SETS the telnet connection after a few minutes.

Anyone have the same issue - and solved it?

This happens even if I use plain-ol'e telnet.
I can change the partition to read/write.
I start looking at some files and ... bang! telnet connection is closed.

I must admit I rarely use telnet, so what-up?

Anyone else getting booted off their Kindle DX? (ROM 2.3).
usbNetwork is still working on the Kindle, I just need to reestablish the telnet session.

Right now it's like a race:
- telnet into the Kindle,
- make the partition read/write,
- change to the directory I want,
- grab the file I need,
-- All before the connection is closed.

If all goes well I can edit the file I grabbed on the 'puter. Then re-do the process to save the file back to the Kindle BEFORE the connection is lost. But I can't edit the file directly on the Kindle as the connection closes so fast that even simple edits are lost.

1. Kill the netwachd
2. Why did you write an extra program? We have dropbear running, so ssh, so scp. And tools like winscp work quite well.

I doubt there's anything rational with this person

I noticed this telnet time-out as well. Have you found a solution?

when you ssh into your Kindle just type:
/etc/init.d/netwatchd stop
