Okay, we do use high security mode specifically, and we require SSL on that
server, I might just leave it as is, if there is no timeout value for these
which I couldn't see when googling earlier today.
I want to look at v2, but need to wait until all staff on are Christmas
holidays, so if upgrade goes pair shaped, I can restore and not get
bombarded with phone calls from management who can't get their mail.
