How do I find the idle timeout for disconnection and log off in Presentation Server 4.5

Hello all,

Put simply, I need to find out all the different areas where you can set the idle timeout / disconnection for Citirix Presenation Server 4.5 so that it can be modified for one user.

To detail the situation:
We have 5 Windows Server 2003 servers with Presentation Server 4.5 installed.
One of the servers has an application installed and published that a particular user needs to leave on for a few hours at a time to allow a modelling process to complete.
After exactly one hour of no mouse or keyboard input, the session is disconnected and logged off the Citrix server. This also happens with other user accounts, so I presume it is set as default somewhere.
Is it possible to extend it for a particular user?

Happy to provide any more info should it be needed.

If memory serves by default I don't think there is a limit on an active session in 4.5, but that doesn't mean someone didn't set something up in a group policy.

Check the group policy and check both the user and computer policies---Administrative Templates/Windows Components/Terminal Services/Sessions and see if the set limit on Terminal server active sessions is enabled.

Also make sure the screen savers aren't active in sessions.

How to do it in windows 2000 GPO ?
khevenAuthor Commented:
for windows 2000:
Log in as a domain admin
Open up the Active Directory Users and Computers mmc
Right click on the OU where the Citrix server is located.
Check to see if there is a group policy set for that OU. If there is, have a look at the path mentioned above because that setting has likely been turned on there.
