Now it is listed in kilometers (km) where ack timeout was.

Just put in the distance, doesn't have to be exact, but it works better the more specific you are. Over estimating the distance is better than under estimating.

Uldis help me via e-mail

the formula is


acktimeout = 25 + 2 * (((distance * 1000) + 299) / 300)

distance in km in whole numbers.
