repeater timeout

How to set a timeout for connections using repeater.exe?
I see that vnc server connections are inactive, but open for hours.
In my opinion, that implies a security hole.

winvnc as service
If it's done by the service, it need to be online and reconnect when the connection to the repeater breaks.
winvnc and repeater send keepalive messages to avoid that the connection timeouts.
That's the only way how you can have an unattended connection

I don't see how a open repeater connection can be a security hole. The hole is not smaller or bigger then winvnc or rdp listening
to connections, in this case it's the repeater that forward the connection to winvnc.

*Always use the encryption plugin
*Use a long password or exchange the key via mail
encryption is between server/viewer, the repetaer just forward the data, he can not understand the bits.

The repeater id is a simple number.
If you test connections by passing 1000 ids, you will find a winvnc whose vncserver was disconnected, but still waiting for reconnection.

So I'm looking for some way to decide on connections from the repeater.
There must be some way to place a timeuot. Although it is high, in minutes

The repeater can handle 1000 connections, all connection older then 36000s are removed.

repeater send a keepalive to the server every minute, when this fail, server is sheduled to be removed
(need to be enabled in the options, webgui)
every 600s shedular remove failed sockets

failed connections are removed every 10 minutes
non failed connections are removed every 10h
