I have been trying out the free tier of Web Services and I have a Node application that uses Socket.io. However, I am having a problem that my websocket connection automatically gets closed exactly after 5 minutes of inactivity.
Although when I run the same server on Localhost I can stay connected for as long as I want and the connection doesn’t get automatically closed.
Is it some sort of Timeout that has been set by default on free web services? I am hesitant to upgrade to a paid tier if this problem still persists.
