Remote Desktop Web – Session Timeouts (Altering)

KB ID 0001215 


Timeouts for the RDWeb portal are defined by the choice you made when you logged in, if you selected ‘private’ or ‘public’ on the PC options, this sets the timeout. The default is 240 mins for private, and 20 minutes for public connections.


To alter these values you need to make changes in the ‘Internet Information Services Management Console’ on the RDWeb server.

Navigate to {Server-name} > Sites > Default Web Site > RDWeb > Pages > Application Settings.

Set RDSWeb Timeouts

You need to alter;

PrivateModeSessionTimeoutIn… AND PublicModeSessionTimeoutIn…

Edit the values according to your requirements.

Set RDSWeb Public Private Timeout

If you find that the changes don’t take effect immediately drop to command line and issue an ‘iisreset’ command.
