Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

If a user logs in to the device and does not perform an operation, the user interface is occupied unnecessarily. You can run the idle-timeout command to disconnect the user's terminal from the device.


  • To disable the user interface disconnection function, run the idle-timeout 0 0 command.
  • If the user interface disconnection function is not configured, user connection will never times out, bringing security risks, and other users may fail to log in to the device.
  • You are advised to set the timeout duration to 10-15 minutes.

If AAA authentication is required for login users, the timeout duration configured by the local-user idle-timeout command takes effect. If no timeout duration is configured or the undo local-user idle-timeout command is executed in the AAA view, the timeout duration configured by the idle-timeout command on the user interface takes effect.


# Set the timeout duration to 1 minute and 30 seconds.
