Administration Guide

Idle timeout

To ensure security, the idle timeout period should be short. By default, administrative sessions are disconnected if no activity takes place for five minutes. This idle timeout is recommended to prevent anyone from using the GUI on a PC that was logged in to the GUI and then left unattended. The idle timeout period can be set from 1 to 480 minutes.

To change the idle timeout:
  1. Go to System Settings > Admin > Admin Settings.
  2. Change the Idle Timeout period as required.
  3. Click Apply.
