I want to extend the length of time before Universal Type Client 7 needs to reconnect to the server.
This article applies to all supported versions of Universal Type Client 7 on all supported operating systems.
You can add the
session.reaping-period option to the com.extensis.UniversalTypeClient.conf file.
This option takes a numerical value, the session length in seconds; the default is 2592000 seconds, or 30 days. To extend the session timeout period to 90 days, add the following line:
session.reaping-period = 7776000
If you are not already using a com.extensis.UniversalTypeClient.conf file, you can download a preset configuration file from https://cs.extensis.com/font/uts/utc-90-day-session-length.zip
Unzip the utc-90-day-session-length.zip file and copy the com.extensis.UniversalTypeClient.conf to the following folder, depending on your operating system:
- /Library/Preferences/ (macOS)
- C:\Program Files (x86)\Extensis\Universal Type Client\ (Windows)
Open Universal Type Client and choose Universal Type Client > Preferences (macOS) or Edit > Preferences (Windows). Select the Type Core tab and press Stop Type Core; UTC will close. The next time you open UTC, it will load the new options from the configuration file.
NOTE: If this option is used for users who are working remotely, those users should be set to All replication mode so that UTC caches all of the available fonts locally. For more information on font replication modes, see the user settings section of Universal Type Server help.
