PIX ask for re-authentication

Hi, I have a PIX 501 with software version 6.3. This PIX is configured to authenticate user for all tcp traffic. The idle timeout is 8 hours. But from 2 days ago, it keeps ask for username and password for authenticated users time to time (every 5-30 minutes). This pix is configured with a url-filter, and it lose connection with the n2h2 server, But I don't think this is the problem since the pix is configured to allow access when n2h2 is not accessable.

Thanks for your help!!

You should check your absolute timeout as well.

Thank you for your reply, I have a absolute timeout for 10 hours. I found an other problem may be the real reason: the pix 501 reboot by itself sometime. I am not sure if this is the reason. But I disabled the authentication for now to let users happy.
