mapped drive timeout issue

mapped drive timeout issue

mapped drive timeout issue

(OP)
I'm running Windows XP Pro. I'm sharing a folder on a peer-to-peer network. Can I change a registry key to lengthen the time-to-live. There's an application that I'm running that seems to expect that network resource to be there instantly or it gives an error message "database not found".
I have to initialize the network mapped drive first then the application works.
Thanks in advance,
B

Thanks bcastner,
I knew it was a registry key setting, just didn't know where. This fixed my problem.
I appreciate your input.
