Re: Console time out

Hi Rupesh ,

To set the interval for closing the connection, use the absolute-timeout command in line configuration mode. To restore the default, use the no form of this command.

absolute-timeout minutes

no absolute-timeout

The following example sets an interval of 60 minutes on line 5:

line 5

absolute-timeout 60

Re: Console time out

Hi Rupesh ,

Use the absolute-timeout command line configuration command to configure the EXEC to terminate when the configured number of minutes occurs on the virtual terminal (vty) line. The absolute-timeout command terminates the connection after the specified time period has elapsed, regardless of whether the connection is being used at the time of termination. You can specify an absolute-timeout value for each port. The user is given 20 seconds notice before the session is terminated. You can use this command along with the logout-warning command to notify users of an impending logout.

Cisco IOS software also provides the session-timeout and exec-timeout line configuration commands for releasing lines when they have been idle for too long.

You can set the absolute-timeout command and an AppleTalk Remote Access Protocol (ARAP) timeout for the same line; however, this command supersedes any timeouts set in ARAP. Additionally, ARAP users will receive no notice of any impending termination if you use this command.

Cheers ,
