Why not? The problem is then in their settings and not in yours.

Well, curl doesn't have any means to do it but if you work on it, you should
be able to get it to send a keep-alive command on the control connection every
now and then. I mean, you will need to add the code for it since it isn't
currently supported.

(SO_KEEPALIVE is not a viable option since it isn't fine-grained enough)
