Disabling inactivity timeout

Hi,

I wish to disable or at least significantly increase the inactivity timer of a telnet session to a 3560. How is this done?

At present, if no commands are typed then after a few minutes the telnet session is automatically closed.

Many thanks

Tony

Re: Disabling inactivity timeout

line vty 0 4

exec-timeout 0

that sets it to never expire.

or

exec-timeout 10 30

which sets it to expire after 10min 30s of idle time. you get the idea.
