RemoteApp server needs auto log-off function after 2 hours of inactivity.

Greetings,

We have a RemoteApp server running our Remote service for employees needing access to files, account, and some pseudo VPN functions.
The server is routed via another called:  RemoteGate.
I need some assistance figuring out how to auto log-off users after being idle for 2 hours.
we have users logging into the RemoteApp and staying logged in even after shutting down their PCs, etc.
I have found a 'how-to' on configuring Terminal Services via Policy but when I browse to that policy location (Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Terminal Services – > Session.) it is not installed and does not exsist.
I should include here that I am a new IT employee at this company and am still learning their systems. I would rather not have to install anything on either server as I don't want to hose anything.
I also looked at this solution with no success as it too was not there:

Setting RDP session timeout auto logoff
By Chris Gaskell
When sharing a dev server there is always someone who ‘disconnects’ rather than logging off or leaves their RDP session connected and idle.

You can set timeouts for these situations to auto logoff the user.
1. Start at Administrative Tools in Control Panel
2. Select Terminal Services Configuration
3. Right click RDP-Tcp and select Properties
4. Select the Sessions tab and set the disconnect and idle as required


As i said, it appears Term Services is not installed as this function is also not present on the server which is a Win 2008-R2 Standard server.

Does anyone have any ideas or do I need to install TS.
If so, is there a way to do that and know it will not hose anything on a system that is only used remotely?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

In Windows 2008 R2, Terminal Services has become Remote Desktop

Hope this helps:
