Hi

In the past couple of weeks I have been trying to get it work right but all seems to be in vain.

We have Citrix users connecting via web and we have Web Interface server and two XEN servers.

The remote users are complaining that if they open a published application and comes back to their workstation after 2-3 hours , they find the opened application still operational while they web page has logged them off and they have to sign back on.

I have looked and checked every possible setting / parameter I can think off but they still get logged off.

I changed the Sessions Timeout , Idle Timeout , ICA Timeout and I can't figure out which setting will help ..

Please I need help .. urgent...

Thanks in Advance.

what is the version of your web interface?

This is for 5.1

For older versions:

The above settings are for web interface time out. The settings that you're trying are for sessions.

Open, Citrix web interface console. Click on the website  on the right side, you will find manage session preferences> you will see web session, where you can specify the timeout settings

Hi

This is where I had done it initially and it's set to 4 hours but it timeout earlier. I am banging my head at everything but I cannot figure out which setting is overriding it's value.
