Group Policy Remote login time

I was asked if it was possible to truncate the amount of time a user can stay logged in in a remote session using group policy. We have Windows Server 2003 on our network, but we are slowly switching over to Windows2008 for everything. So I suppose I'll need to know on both.

Any ideas?

Server 2008:
Do either of the following:
*Press the Windows logo key + R to open the RUN dialog box. Type gpmc.msc in the text box, and then click OK or press ENTER.
*Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then click Run. Type gpmc.msc in the text box, and then click OK or press ENTER.

Server 2003:

Theoretically I would be able to access that on my Main Domain Controller correct? because typing gpmc.msc is coming up with the error "Windows cannot find gpmc.msc, Please make sure you typed it correctly then try again."

We have a program set up on a server, that is too expensive to implement on each local host, or each network we have set up. So we allow people to remote in and use the program for whatever they specifically need it for. Anyways the users leave themselves logged in for pretty long times, (longer than they would need to be to get their job done.) usually for 24 hour sessions. We would like to drop them down to 4 hours.

It was through my own lack of knowledge that I didn't realize that this was the actual solution to my problem. Thanks for your assistance.
