Web GUI Timeout

The web GUI timeout on my AP seems to be too short, if I login and sit idle for about 60 seconds when I select a different menu item I need to type in my credentials again. At that point I notice that on the login menu it says to login for priv access level 1. How can I increase the login timeout so I dont need to keep typing in my credentials. I've already typed in the command no exec timeout but that only seems to help when im using the command line.

Re: Web GUI Timeout

Read your post wrong. You should be able to set the timeout from the management http/https section.

ip http timeout-policy

Re: Web GUI Timeout

The app is not showing the correct CLI command

ip http timeout-policy idle

Re: Web GUI Timeout

Sorry, I'm actually referring to an autonomous AP not a WLC.

I posted the autonomous commands also.

Re: Web GUI Timeout

ip http timeout-policy idle <1-600 sec> life <1-86400>

 

For your SSH timeouts, you would want to modify the following under your vty line configuration:

 

exec-timeout

Re: Web GUI Timeout

Yes I did see that. What does the 'requests' mean because it requires me to type it in?

AP2(config)#ip http timeout-policy idle 600 life 6000        

% Incomplete command.

AEGL-NASH-AP2(config)#ip http timeout-policy idle 600 life 6000 requests ?

  <1-86400>  Maximum number of requests allowed on a http server connection

Re: Web GUI Timeout

How many connections do you want to allow a one time.

Re: Web GUI Timeout

Is this VTY sessions allowed? I would think the same as the sessions limit 15, no?

Re: Web GUI Timeout

You can... Depends on how many users might need access. Some

Like to limit it to 5 or less.

Re: Web GUI Timeout

Great. So this is my command:

AEGL-NASH-AP2(config)#ip http timeout-policy idle 600 life 6000 requests 5

So I'm basically saying here that there is a policy on my AP that when I'm using the GUI and it's idle it will only remain idle for 600 seconds or 10 minutes, and only allow 5 simultaneous users at a time. Right?
