Windows login delay with eBackpack Connect after a bad password

If you are not able to disconnect and reconnect quickly or attempt to use an invalid password - you may have to wait a minute before reconnecting.  This can be adjusted through a registry modification.

Registry setting for timeouts

The WebClient service maintains a list of non-DAV servers (negative cache) that have been contacted in the last 60 seconds. If the server is found in this list, a fail is returned immediately without going on the network. The time a server remains in this list can be modified by changing the value of the ServerNotFoundCacheLifeTimeInSec registry entry.

Note If the
\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WebClient\Parameters\ServerNotFoundCacheLifeTimeInSec
registry entry does not exist, create the entry.
Type: REG_DWORD 
Value: Default 60 (Decimal)
No maxium and no minimum value

We recommend setting this to 5 seconds.
