– For a 24-hour interval, enter ‘3.’

– Finally, enter the length of time you prefer it to take for a push attempt to timeout. You may enter a timeout value between 5 and 255 seconds. (10 seconds is the default.)

7. Then, the Telnet menu will reappear. This time, at the ‘Your choice?’ prompt, enter ‘9,’ which corresponds to ‘save and exit.’
