I have a Windows 2000 member server of a domain that has Metaframe XP and Nfuse 1.6. Where do I set the idle time. I have tried to set it in the Nfuse.conf file, in Tcp session area. Should I be setting this in the main domain since it is a member server. It times out after 6 min after I change everyhting to 30 minutes. Does anyone have step by step instructions on where to set this.

 Session Timeouts

You can configure three different timeout periods for each connection: connection timeout, disconnection timeout, and idle timeout. Each of these choices allows you to specify the timeout in minutes. The checkbox allows the timeout settings of the connection to default to those specified in the user profile as opposed to by the connection itself. This allows for different settings on a user-by-user basis. Selecting “no timeout” disables that specific session timer for that connection.

The “Connection” timeout allows you to specify the maximum time that an ICA session can stay connected. After this time passes, the server either disconnects or terminates the session. (The decision to terminate or disconnect the session is determined by the connection property setting outlined later.)

The “Disconnection” timeout causes the server to reset a disconnected session after the specified time has passed. This will cause the current user to lose any work that was in progress. The disconnection timer is a good way clean up any disconnected sessions that users have forgotten about. Many companies set this to something like 2880 minutes (48 hours). If they have some situations that require less time, they configure those in the user profile. If you configure disconnection timeouts for users in addition to the connection properties, the more restrictive setting will always take precedence.

The “Idle” timeout specifies the amount of time that a live connection can stay in an idle state (no activity) before the server automatically disconnects or resets the session. From a security standpoint, the idle timeout works well as an “automatic lock-down.” Many companies set their idle timeouts relatively low so that if a user leaves his desk with an active ICA session open, the server will disconnect the session after a few minutes. Then, when the user returns to his desk, he can conveniently reconnect to his disconnected session, without losing any work.

Extreme care must be taken when working with these connection timeouts. Almost all environments that utilize connection timeouts configure them as a property of the user account (at the “user layer”), instead of configuring them here as a property of a connection. The one exception is the disconnection timeout, which are used to clean up any old sessions.
