      Description

      The chat window intermittently times out if left idle when using Internet Explorer (IE) and Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS). This is intermittent but can happen after a few minutes.

      Problem observed with Moodle 2.7.14, IIS 8 (8.0.9200.16384) and IE 11 (11.0.9600.18314).

      Steps:

      1. Set up a Moodle site using PHP under Microsoft IIS.
      2. Add a chat activity to a course.
      3. Click the "Click here to enter the chat now" link. The chat window will open.
      4. The chat window may stop updating. This may happen after a few minutes or longer.
