logging off a user's basic authentication credentials after a period of inactivity

Hello everyone,

I have a lot of users that connect to our web site using Basic Authentication.  They type in their username and password via a grey pop up box.

Does anyone know of a way to prompt the user to re-enter his or her username and password after a period of inactivity?  It does not look like any settings that I do in Active Directory seem to work (I am not surprised about this because they aren't actually logging on to the domain).

Without the use of a script I am not aware of any way to do this.

javascript has the ability to do this....I am sure if you hit a java site or other script pages they could help you more. Or could even find some free ones already out there
If that is the route you need i suggest reposting Programing Web Languages - http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/

If you are trying to do it from your server then. i would suggest reposting this quesiton in web dev/web servers -  http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Servers/


If the web users are logging into a local machine somewhere you can do this
Manage your computer
local users and groups
select Properties for an individual user account
select the Sessions tab
set "End a disconnected session" to * minutes
set "Idle session limit" to * minutes
check the radio button for "End Session"
