    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.
