No session timeout

To allow clients to permanently connect with legacy medical applications and systems that do not have keepalive or auto-reconnect features, the session timeout can be set to never for firewall services, policies, and VDOMs.

The options to disable session timeout are hidden in the CLI.

To set the session TTL value of a custom service to never:
config firewall service custom
    edit "tcp_23"
        set tcp-portrange 23
        set session-ttl never
    next
end
To set the session TTL value of a policy to never:
config firewall policy
    edit 201
        set srcintf "wan1"
        set dstintf "wan2"
        set srcaddr "all"
        set dstaddr "all"
        set action accept
        set schedule "always"
        set service "TCP_8080"
        set logtraffic disable
        set session-ttl never
        set nat enable
    next
end
To set the session TTL value of a VDOM to never:
config system session-ttl
    set default never
    config port
        edit 1
            set protocol 6
            set timeout never
            set start-port 8080
            set end-port 8080
        next
    end
end
To view a session list with the timeout set to never:
