Setting the idle timeout

By default, the GUI disconnects administrative sessions if no activity occurs for five minutes. This prevents someone from using the GUI if the management PC is left unattended.

To change the idle timeout:
  1. Go to System > Admin > Settings.
  2. Enter the time in minutes in the Idle Timeout (Minutes) field.
  3. Update other settings as required:
    • TCP/UDP port values for HTTP, HTTPS, Telnet, SSH
    • Display language
  4. Select Apply.
