Is there a way that if the session for a remote user is idle for 20min that the session will end and they will be logged off the server. I have tried to set this in the user properties under session but it doesn't seem to work. any help will be great.

Hi,

If you've already done this I apologise but on the server in question have you checked Terminal Services Configuration under Control Panel\Adiministrative Tools?  Select connections from the left and right click RDP-TCP and select properties.  Under Sessions you can configure TS session times etc.  Also check the permissions tab and ensure that these are set correctly and apply to your connecting users.
