Do I need "sessionState" in webconfig when using Forms Authenrtication?

I'm using Forms Authentication. In WebConfig I have:
 <sessionState timeout="30"  mode="InProc"></sessionState>
    </system.web>

But in Forms Authentication also has a cookie timeout like this:
<forms name="appNameAuth" path="/" loginUrl="login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="30">

So do I need that sessionState in webconfig??

No, you don't need it. It doesn't have any effect on forms authentication.

I think the Forms Authentication is only for authentication cookie/session and sessionState for others (the default is 20 minutes)

DarkoLordCommented:
If you want to change the default session timeout (20 minutes), then yes, otherwise no

i want to do the same thing too.

I set it everywhere in 1 minute, none of them working.
and i thought Web.Config <sessionState timeout="1"/> is the way to go, please advise,

 - Web.config: timeout property in <sessionState>
  - Machine.config: timeout property in <sessionState>
  - IIS - Connection Timeout for the Default Web Site
  - IIS - Session Timeout for MyWebSite set

so what is the solution?
in order to make it one hour:
you do this?
 <sessionState timeout="60"  mode="InProc"></sessionState>
    </system.web>

and also this
<forms name="appNameAuth" path="/" loginUrl="login.aspx" protection="All" timeout="60">

What else? it will do the job to extend to 1 hour?
