Re: User logout automatically

Please check the file of the user's .profile,there is a variabel named 'TMOUT',comment it.

Re: User logout automatically

Hi Rajib,

hy is right. See man ksh or whatever shell you use. You can see the value for timeout wirh set | grep TMOUT.

Re: User logout automatically

You forgot to tell us what shell these users are using. Depending on the user's default shell the files and variables are different. For example for csh & tcsh users you can set "set autologout = 10080" in /etc/csh.cshrc file. The above sets autologout to 7 days exactly. After 7 days of idle time a user's session will be automatically logged out. The same could be done also on per user basis in user's dot files in his/her home directory

HTH,

Re: User logout automatically

Ross,

does this also work for the graphic console login? Does it end the session or just the shell?

Re: User logout automatically

Michael,

It works the same as setting TMOUT in say /etc/profile for shells that use /etc/profile (sh, bash, ksh, etc). It will log the user(s) out after the idle time set is reached.

Ross
