I'm working on writing an NTRIP client. NTRIP is a protocol for transfering GPS correction data over the internet. It is based off of the IceCast streaming audio protocol. Basically I send a request to a server, and it starts sending data back to me.

The connection works great, and I can receive data for 1 minute. At that point, the connection drops. It appears there is a timeout that is causing the connection to drop.

I have done packet captures of another NTRIP client (GNSS Internet Radio) and I don't see anything that looks like a keep alive message. I suspect it is something on my end that is dropping the connection.

Does VB.Net have a default timeout of 1 minute on sockets, and how do I increase that?
