Server limits policy settings

The Server Limits section contains the policy setting for controlling idle connections.

Server idle timer interval

This setting determines, in milliseconds, how long an uninterrupted user session is maintained if there is no input from the user.

By default, idle connections are not disconnected (server idle timer interval = 0). Citrix recommends setting this value to a minimum of 60000 milliseconds (60 seconds).


When this policy setting is used, an “Idle timer expired” dialog box might appear to users when the session has been idle for the specified time. This message is a Microsoft dialog box that is not controlled by Citrix policy settings. For more information, see CTX118618.
