It should be one hour. You can view the current timeout settings with "sh timeout" or "sh running-config timeout".

Prior to 3.x code the timeout setting was global so if you changed the TCP timeout it affected all tcp connections. However with v3.x code you can now use Modular Policy Framework to set timeouts for specific ports/IP addresses -

Yes my query is cleared just can you provide some other document also for port based increasing the idle time out session in firewall.
