PLATFORM: Windows NT4.0
This problem is related to CR016295. Using Tuxedo6.4/WS with RP183. When RP304 is applied, network delay occurs by the
congeniality problem with L4 switch(Alteon:ACEdirector3). Tuxedo has changed disconnect method of network connection
from soft close to hard close in RP194(CR016295). Alteon keeps connection for 10 minutes even if it received RST
packet. This causes network delay when the number of connections reach maximum of 4000 . Since L4 switch configuration
can not be changed,  the customer requests an option to set the network disconnection method back to soft close.
