Timeout not working as specified in Web.config

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by Felix_WafyTech, Apr 7, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I've set the timeout to 720 in the web.config file (see detila below).
    However, the page elapses after 20 minutes and the login screen is displayed
    again. Is there anything else that needs to be set or taken care of? Your
    help is appreciated.

    <system.web>
    <sessionState mode="InProc" cookieless="false" timeout="720"/>

    <membership defaultProvider="SqlProvider" userIsOnlineTimeWindow="720">

    <providers>

    <remove name="AspNetSqlProvider"/>

    <add name="SqlProvider" type="System.Web.Security.SqlMembershipProvider"
    connectionStringName="ConnectionString" enablePasswordRetrieval="false"
    enablePasswordReset="true" requiresQuestionAndAnswer="true"
    passwordFormat="Hashed" applicationName="/"/>

    </providers>

    </membership>

    </system.web>

    Thanks,
    Felix.J

  2. Hi Felix,

    Thank you for posting.

    Regard on the timeout of the forms authentication ticket problem, is it a
    common problem among all the ASP.NET application on that server, also, is
    this a machine specific issue? Also, since forms authentication ticket is
    stored in client cookie by default, you can turn on the ASP.NET page trace
    on the page to check whether the cookie is always persisted correctly
    during the lifetime of the user's login time.
