Natural session timeout in SPOD with NDV and AIX


My SPOD sessions are timing out and then the PC process on the Windows PC just hangs/no response.

Natural Studio : 6.3.8
Natural NDV : V2.2.sm03
AIX V5.3

My UNIX tmout parameter is set to 0 but I am going to try and set it to 28800 for eight hours. Not sure if this would help :

Extract from IBM manual :
You can force a terminal to log out after a period of inactivity by setting the TMOUT and TIMEOUT parameters in the /etc/profile file. The TMOUT parameter works in the ksh (Korn) shell, and the TIMEOUT parameter works in the bsh (Bourne) shell. For more information about the TMOUT parameter, see Parameter substitution in the Korn shell or POSIX shell. For more information about the TIMEOUT parameter, see Variable substitution in the Bourne shell.

The following example, taken from a .profile file, forces the terminal to log out after an hour of inactivity:

echo “Setting Autologout to $TO”
export TIMEOUT TMOUTNote: You can override the TMOUT and TIMEOUT values in the /etc/profile file by specifying different values in the .profile file in your home directory.
