Im setting up terminal services for remote application usage, can the timeout option be set lower than 1 minute, I want it set to 2 seconds.
Can this be done or is there a hack for it.

    Can I ask why you'd want to do that?

    Unfortunately, it appears that you cannot set the timeout to lower than 1 minute. That is not just because the pull down menu only gives you 1 minute, it is because internally the time is stored as an integer of minutes, so you can't even 'hack it' and make it 0.5minutes (or in your case, 1/30th of a minute!) etc.

    Yea I thought that, looking through the groups.....

    "Can I ask why you'd want to do that?"

    I can see some users closing the session by accident and trying to open it again straight away before the time-out. Hassel :-(

    Anyway thanks for the input.
