If requiring heartbeats is not usual then something is wrong with our

Server and client machine (machine from the consumer is launched) are on the
same IP range.
What may be the cause of not detecting clients unexpected disconnections?
(by the way, the server in fact are 2 clustered servers running under ubuntu
10 server and client machine is Windows Vista)
