    Timeout for staff logins

    Is there any way to set a timeout for staff logins on the Aleph client?

    Aleph makes no provision for timeout of pc sessions, in the sense of dropping the connection of the pc to the server.
    That would be an enhancement request.


    The PC_SERVER_TIMEOUT variable of the pc_server_defaults file is used to determine the max time in seconds for which the server attempts to handle a single transaction.

    There's a PC_IDLE_CONNECTION_TIMEOUT in the $aleph_proc/pc_server file, but it also does not relate to the dropping of the pc session.
