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 user-interface vty idle-timeout command to disconnect the user's terminal from the device.


If the parameters minutes and seconds are both set to 0, the VTY timeout disconnection function is disabled.


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