The “Maximum Logged On Users” displays the number of connections this server can accept over the network. It displays maximum 10 that means only 10 users can log on to this server or access files over the network. You can not change this.
 
The “Idle session time (min)” is the time up to which users can be active on this server. After expiry of this time, the users will be disconnected automatically and they have to log on to again to access files. By default, it is 10 minutes but you can change it to as per your requirement. To change the idle time setting, please use the following command:
 
Net Config Server /AUTODISCONNECT: 50
