Re: time out session vreation

Hi,

Put them anywhere above the "trap 1 2 3" line.

You don't need a user for TMOUT, just set the variable as you require. i.e

TMOUT=600;export TMOUT

HI,
and for umask set at /etc/profile for all user and root/.profile for root user.


# echo umask 07022 >> /etc/profile
# echo umask 07077 >> ~root/.profile

Re: time out session vreation

By default for files the permissions are 666 and directories are 777.

so it would be world readable and writable.

Hence for security, we set umask.

For ex. umask is 0022

So the default permissions with change to

For files:

666
022
----
644

for directories:

777
022

-----
755

These values are too big for umask, only 9 bits. It would also make more sense to edit the files rather than blindly adding to the end.

Re: time out session vreation

you need to relogin with a new session and keep it idle for 5 mins.
