Changing the session timeout property

P: n/a
Hi,
I was wondering if for an application, I can change the default session
timeout property via IIS Administration? If so, how does one do it. Thanks in
advance.

Thanks Bob for the help. I got it. Now, if I set 0 as the session timeout for
the application from the options menu, according to your article the server
will never time out. Keeping this value 0, then any user can have the
application open for a long time and come back and finish entry. Does keeping
0 will pose a problem when there are about hundred users using the web
application (may be at the same time) ? Thanks. Regards.

Yes. Your server may run out of memory. If it has plenty of memory then you
may be all right.

Each session takes up a certain amount of system resources. if they never
time out (and you never issue a session.abandon command) the resources will
never be released back to the system.
