I need to impose an inactivity timer for Terminal Services sessions.
Posted on 2003-11-17
I'm new to W2K Terminal Services, and appear to be experiencing issues with wireless users who
reestablish TS sessions without gracefully closing previous sessions. The result is redundant, dormant sessions that I can see in TS Manager, and throughput to the app allegedly suffers greatly for all wireless users until these extraneous sessions are administratively disconnected at the con.
Can I instate a timer (exclusive of TCP keepalives) that will force the server to automatically end the session upon timing out? I would rather handle this at L7 rather than L4, but if I do have to clobber the session at L4 will Terminal Services become unstable as my transport mechanism terminates inactive sessions?
