Re: Telnet session -Idle time out

Yes, after adding TMOUT=60 (for testing purpose)in the .profile of the user, after being idle for 60 sec it is showing
"Shell will time out in 60 seconds". After another 60 Secs it is showing "Timed out waiting for input." and then the connection is lost.

So total 60+60=120 secs for the time out.

So, if I want exactly 60 secs after which the timed out will happen, shoud I set TMOUT=30 or I need to do something else.

Thanks...

You should set it to 60 and live with the extra 60 second grace period. If you set it to 0, your users will be very upset.

If you want exactly 30 minutes, you can use:
TMOUT=$(( (30-1) * 60 ))
