enable netlogin session-refresh

enable netlogin session-refresh {refresh_minutes}


Enables network login session refresh.

Syntax Description

refresh_minutes Specifies the session refresh time for network login in minutes.


Enabled, with a value of three minutes for session refresh.

Usage Guidelines

Network login sessions can refresh themselves after a configured timeout. After the user has been logged in successfully, a logout window opens which can be used to close the connection by clicking on the Logout link. Any abnormal closing of this window is detected on the switch and the user is logged out after a time interval as configured for session refresh. The session refresh is enabled and set to three minutes by default. The value can range from 1 to 255 minutes. When you configure the network login session refresh for the logout window, ensure that the FDB aging timer is greater than the network login session refresh timer.

This command applies only to the web-based authentication mode of network login.

To reset the session refresh value to the default behavior, use this command without the minutes parameter.


The following command enables network login session refresh and sets the refresh time to ten minutes:

enable netlogin session-refresh 10
