The admin login to my FVS338 times out after what seems like 2-3 minutes. How can I increase that timeout via the admin webapp? There must be a setting, but I'm not able to find it.

Go to Administration> Set Password> Idle Timeout.  Change that to a longer timeout period and Apply the setting, then it won't time-out so quickly.

Please see chapter 6 page 18 of the manual:

Sometimes the settings can be well hidden or difficult to find : ). It's one of the first settings I usually change!!

Glad you are sorted and thanks for the points.
