IIS Session Timeout

We're running an IIS web server and want to know if there is a way to automatically log-off/disconnect a web session after a certain period of time.  The IIS server is being used by the SalesLogix Web Host application and users are leaving their browsers open all night and SalesLogix won't let them log back in until they're logged-off first.  I suspect the application DLL is performing some kind of keep-alive so the default IIS timeout isn't triggering.  Any thoughts on this?

IIS will only close the session when the session timeout is reached.  If there is some application that keeps the session alive there is no setting in IIS that will close the session.

If this were an ASP application you could call Session.End to kill the session explicitly.

Sorry.

That's all I was looking for, either a way to do it or a reason why it can't be done.  Thanks so much for the quick response!
