Idle Timeout in OWA
By philipflint
When you connect to OWA, it will disconnect you (log you out) if you don’t use the interface for a period. This can be annoying as the timeout periods are quite low.
This can quite easily be fixed by running the commands below.
set-ItemProperty ‘HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchange OWA’ -name PublicTimeout -value <amount of time> -type dword
The above sets the timout (in minutes) if you logon from a public computer. The below command has a similar effect of you logon stating that you are on a private computer.
set-ItemProperty ‘HKLM:\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchange OWA’ -name PrivateTimeout -value <amount of time> -type dword
Bear in mind that, if OWA is published through ISA, ISA can also set this time out limit for connections through ISA.
