Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2004-04-02 13:40:12 CEST
It would be nice if the client would automatically disconnect itself from the
session, if no user input has been detected for some time. This is not the same
thing as the session termination stuff in bug 171.

Xvnc has had this functionality for some time.

Actually, no: We have three different options that can terminate Xvnc depending on various conditions, including how long the client has been disconnected. However, as far as I know, we have no functionality for *disconnecting* the client after some time.

Actually, we do. 

The IdleTimeout parameter takes a argument in seconds and disconnects a session that has been idle for that time. Works great from my (limited) testing, but probably needs mention in the admin guide.

Leaving it open, moving to 3.4.0 for documentation updates.

IdleTimeout works for me too; documented in r25533.

Documentation is fine.
