telnet timeout setting

Can someone tell me if there is a setting to alter just the telnet timeout setting without affecting other kinds of logins? Like leaving SSH unnafected.

I've found the variable TMOUT, that I can set system wide, but I'm afraid it will affect the entire system and start to knock down the ssh users.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,
regarding TMOUT you are right. This variable is used to set the shell timeout. After a TMOUT (seconds) period of inactivity, the shell will time out (after having issued a warning nn seconds before).
Regarding telnet, I'll do some research, but I don't think we can change the timeout.
