Description

Though this might be a rare occasion it happens quite easily if you're not in at least one channel that has some decent activity. Since as long as there are no incoming/outgoing messages there is really zero activity on the connection. Thus it's possible that the connection is dropped from the NAT table of routers or whatever...

Anyways: keep alive is needed :)

When in client mode the SignalProxy sends out a HeartBeat every minute.
This keeps the connection alive (aka: make sure it doesnt drop out of NAT tables) and allows the client to determine connection losses.
