Timeouts can be set on the RD Gateway server for Remote Desktop Services clients. Timeouts can be used to reclaim resources from inactive user sessions or periodically enforce policies on active user connections for Remote Desktop Services clients connected by using an RD Gateway server.
Remote Desktop Gateway timeouts
The following timeouts can be set on the Timeouts tab of the Properties dialog box for a Remote Desktop connection authorization policy (RD CAP) for the RD Gateway server.
- Enable idle timeout is used to reclaim resources from
inactive user sessions without impacting the user’s session and
data. When the idle timeout is reached, the session is disconnected
and resources from the session are reclaimed by the RD Gateway
- Enable session timeout is used to periodically enforce
policies on active user connections. When the session timeout is
reached, the session can be disconnected, or the session can be
reauthenticated and reauthorized with no impact to the user and
their session if no policy changes have been made.
