I use the Cisco Anyconnect VPN client with the ASA 5520 firewall. I need to enable a timeout on VPN clients so they disconnect after 8 hours of inactivity. How do I enable this? I'm running 8.2(3).

Funny, I can't find anything on the CLI, but I did find this on YouTube, although I don't see what version they're running.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXbLBNAI0V8  See if that answers your question.
