  The timers are drive by packets from the clients.  There is no timer started when the first packet is proxied.

  i.e if the client sends packets at 0 seconds, 8, 16, and 24 seconds, the server will see at 24 seconds that the home server is not responsive.  The server won't fire a timer at 20 seconds exactly.
