No Response Error

Sorry to ask what may be a question with an obvious answer. I have
checked the FAQs and all documentation I can find.

We are trying to set up a reflector on an SGI machine. Using a
Macintosh client, we can connect to it fine. Using a PC client,
however, if no one else is on the reflector, a PC will get a
"No Response" error. If the Macintosh is already connected,
the error will not occur, and the PC will connect correctly.
We have tried accessing it from both inside and outside the
firewall with the same effect. This does not seem to fall under
the conditions listed in the PC FAQ.

Does the PC client have some kind of timeout coded into it to
generate this error if noone else is on the reflector?
