configure netlogin session-timeout

configure netlogin session-timeout {dot1x | mac | web-based} timeout


Use this command to set the maximum number of seconds an authenticated session may last before termination of the session.

Syntax Description

dot1x IEEE 802.1X Port-based network access control.
mac MAC authentication.
web-based Web-based authentication.
timeout Number of seconds before session timeout (range 0-172800).


0 seconds.

Usage Guidelines

A value of zero may be superseded by a session timeout value provided by the authenticating server. For example, if a session is authenticated by a RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial In User Service) server, that server may encode a Session-Timeout Attribute in its authentication response.

The specifications from this command appear in show configuration {module-name} {detail} for "policy" and "netlogin."


This example shows how to set the session-timeout value for an active session, for mac authentication to 500 seconds:

configure netlogin session-timeout mac 500
