Automatically logging off users after X amount of idle time

I have a bunch of Solaris boxes that I manage. I notice that some users have MANY connections, some are idle for 29 days or so.  This is excessive.  I'd like to know a method to automatically log off the users (coming in over X Sessions using Reflection X) after X amount of idle time.  I know that SSH contains this type of option.  Does the default Solaris 2.6, 7, 8 X Server contain such an option?

I don't know of anything furnished with Solaris that does that, but you can obtain that funtionality by installing idled from http://www.darkwing.com/idled/

In the Korn shell, you can set an environment variable called TMOUT.  This specifies the timeout value.

Do you use the Korn shell?
