configure netlogin session-refresh

configure netlogin session-refresh {refresh_seconds}


Configures network login session refresh.

Syntax Description

refresh_seconds Specifies the session refresh time for network login in seconds.


Enabled, with a value of 180 seconds 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 360 seconds by default. The value can range from 1 to 3600 seconds. 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.


The following command enables network login session refresh and sets the refresh time to 100 seconds:

configure netlogin session-refresh 100
