How do I change the windows terminal server idle timeout window?
Posted on 2008-10-24
I have a client using terminal server through a VPN. Several times a day they lose their session on the client PC, but the server thinks they're still logged in, and will leave them logged in for 3 - 4 hours. I'm unsure if the server cannot tell that they went idle, or if there is some timeout setting that it just waaaay wrong.
The root cause of the disconnects is either the clients local ISP flapping, or their PC itself being well, kind of a hunk of crap. Either way I have to manually log in and disconnect their zombied sessions. Is there a way I can change server settings to properly identify and disconnect idle sessions?
Client is XP pro, server is win2k3.
