I found a couple of old posts about updating the default session timeout in the common.asp file using the Session.Timeout property. I can't seem to find this anywhere in my Common.asp file. Can someone direct me to the location?

Thank you!

From memory you enter the lines at the beginning of the common file, something like Session Timeout = 100 (not right). But don't bother it doesn't work. I keep the sessions open with an iframe embedded page that refreshes every so many seconds. This way I can also set the time out based on the user.

Waspman,
Can you provide an example of how your loading the pages in an iframe. I like the idea but each page just calls another page not an iframe.

just create a page that refreshes itself every x seconds.

I set the refresh frequency in the header of this page based on the user so some people don't stop open all day. I also display "You are logged on as John Smith last session refresh = 11:30"
just to make it useful:)

Stick the iFrame to call the page in the footer of your main page and the server thinks your session is active so it doesn't drop.

waspman,
just tried to get this going and failed. Can you tell me where I missed the point?

Add a footer to my page with an include file called footer.ccp
In the Footer.html I placed the iFrame block
<IFRAME SRC="confidential_notice.html" width="600" height="65"
</IFRAME>

It calls a confidential_notice.html with thre refresh instructions and a text message:
<html><head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="15">
</head><body>
<center>
<font size=1>This site is for internal use only
</font></center>
</body></html>

I see IE refresh itself every 15 seconds. But when I tried to update the record on the screen after waiting a while, I got the login page. My session was lost.
