session timeout question

session timeout question

session timeout question

I'm working on an ASP classic application. I wish to set my session.timeout to 1 minute for testing purposes. I placed session.timeout = 1 in the global.asa but it seems not to be working because the session is still I alive. I can still browse through the application.  How do I do it and where should I place the session.timeout? Do I still have to configure something in the server? Thank you very much.

RE: session timeout question

You can set it in IIS.

Click on the properties for your directory in IIS.  In the Directory tab, click on Configuration.  Go to the App Options tab and from there you can set your Session Timeout values for the entire site.

RE: session timeout question

Chopstik is right. Check your IIS server for timeout requirements.
If this server is not under your control and it supported by an ISP..then you have get some tech help from them
