Changing citrix web interface timeout period for certain users

We are using Citrix Presentation Server 4.5.  When users log into the citrix web interface, they get logged off after a period of inactivity.  I would like to be able to stop the interface from logging off specific users or at least be able to adjust the inactivity time limit for some users to be different to that for other users.
Can this be done?

Thank you MqcIT, however that changes the inactivity time limit for all users and I only want to change it for a few users.  Any other suggestions?

oh, sorry I didn't see that requirement when I read your post.  No I do not think that is possible.  those are IIS webservice settings.  The only thing I can think of would be to have more than one web interface site for your different subsets of users.  Of course this isn't an ideal solution.

You can't set the timeout period based on users/groups. To achive this you need to add a new webinterface site like said above.
