Any idea how to set the Citrix client so that any disconnected or idle session for 15 min will be completely clear out from the Citrix Server. I'm using PS 4.5.

On the Connection settings, Advanced settings, you can control the various timeouts and actions.

The timeout intervals (set in minutes) are:

 Disconnection This setting specifies the maximum duration that a disconnected session is retained. If a disconnection duration is specified, sessions in the disconnected state are terminated when the specified duration elapses. If No Timeout is selected, the disconnection timer is disabled.

 Idle This setting specifies the maximum idle time (time without connection activity) allowed before the session is disconnected or terminated. If an idle duration is specified, the session is disconnected or terminated when the specified interval elapses without any activity at the connection. If No Timeout is specified, the idle timer is disabled.

 Connection This setting specifies the maximum connection duration. If a connection duration is specified, the session is disconnected or terminated when the specified duration elapses. If No Timeout is selected, the connection timer is disabled.

You are interested in setting Idle and Disconnected to 15 minutes, and specifying that the session be reset in those situations.

To launch the Citrix Connection Configuration, click Start, Programs, Citrix, Administration Tools and then select "Citrix Connection Configuration".

I couldn't find that it. Only the followings items existed in Administration Tools :
--> Citrix SSL Relay Configuration Tool
--> ICA Client Printer Configuration
--> Installation Manager Packager
--> Shadown Taskbar
--> SpeedScreen Latency Reduction Manger

Can I invoke this through command ?? I'm using PS 4.5

Sorry - I think it's in the Citrix Management Console for PS 4.5.

In PS 4.5, some of the configuration settings were moved to the "Terminal Services Configuration" tool. Check there.
