SharePoint Session Timeout

I am aware that by default, sharepoint will timeout a web part.
However, you are able to just refresh the page and provide the information again.
I would like to have the session timeout, force the user to login again.
I have read on some other threads that I should modify the web.config file to do this.

If someone could confirm this and give me a little direction on how to edit this file correctly... it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,

Just add this in your global.asax.
'Uses the OnAcquireRequestState event so you have session vars accesible
Sub Application_OnAcquireRequestState(sender as Object, Details as EventArgs)
If Session("MyVariable") = "" Then
'Signout
FormsAuthentication.SignOut()
' Tries to Reload the page and then redirects to the Login page
Server.Transfer(Request.Url.AbsolutePath.ToString, True)
End If
End Sub


This one explains a lot about web.config:

if(Session["memberID"] == null)
{
Response.Redirect("redirectpage.aspx");
}
