Under Connections, right-click the name of the connection, and then click Properties.
In the Properties dialog box for the connection, on the Sessions tab, select the following options as necessary:
Select the Override user settings check box, and then set timeout settings for End a disconnected session, Active session limit, and Idle session limit.
Select the Override user settings check box, and then select one of the following reconnection settings: Disconnect from session or End session.
