Enabling or disabling the timeout period for Telnet or SSH-interactive sessions

You can enable or disable the timeout period for Telnet or SSH-interactive sessions. If the timeout period is enabled, Telnet or SSH-interactive connections are automatically disconnected after the number of minutes specified by the autologout.telnet.timeout option has elapsed.

Step

  1. To enable or disable the timeout period for Telnet or SSH-interactive sessions, enter the following command:
    options autologout.telnet.enable [on|off]

    The default is on, which causes Telnet or SSH-interactive connections to be disconnected automatically after the number of minutes specified by the autologout.telnet.timeout option has elapsed.

    Any change to the autologout.telnet.enable option requires a logout before it takes effect.
