server 2012, remote desktop adminitration mode timeout

i have setup a new 2012 essentials for a client that uses it for their medical software.  it is used as a normal server and they rdp from another office into it.  he only needs the 2 connections that come with the server so i did not install rds.  the problem is the rdp session times out like every 15min or 30 min.. how do i set this longer?  
i can find anything about server 2012 and being in remote desktop administration mode?

You can also configure timeout and reconnection settings by applying the following Group Policy settings:

Set time limit for disconnected sessions
Set time limit for active but idle Remote Desktop Services sessions
Set time limit for active Remote Desktop Services sessions
Terminate session when time limits are reached
These Group Policy settings are located in the following locations:

RUN>GPEDIT.MSC

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Session Time Limits

User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Session Time Limits

i have these settings set in both user and computer under local gp. it is still not working.  I don't know what else to do.  I have the
limit for dissconnected-1 day
active but idle-1 day
active-1 day
terminate-enabled
they are saying the session stays up for about 30 min and disconnects? anything else?

Try changing keep alive value in GPO for both user and computer configuration.

Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Connections

Configure Keep-alive connection interval : 999999
