On a Windows 2000 server with Terminal Services installed, each user's account can be configured for connection, disconnection, and idle time-out values. These settings can also be configured for all Terminal Server connections by using the Terminal Services Configuration snap-in.
The listed values for the connection, disconnection, and idle time-out values are:
The time-out settings are stored in the registry as DWORD values, and are represented in milliseconds. The maximum values are 71,582 minutes, 1,193 hours, or 49.7 days. If an administrator types a value that is larger than the maximum allowed and applies the change, a message is returned that indicates the maximum allowed value.
Entries are rounded to the nearest tenth. For example, if you type "12.67 hours," the value is rounded to 12.7 hours.
If you type only a value, the value is interpreted as an hour value.
Any fractional minute value is rounded up or down to a whole minute value. Therefore, 0.23 minutes equals zero minutes, and 0.50 minutes equals 1 minute.
