    How do I shorten the idle timeout for the web browser interface?

    My understanding is the interface is controlled by pveproxy and the default idle timeout is 2 hours.

    I presume a brute force way to terminate an idle session is manually restart the pveproxy service.

    Thanks again. :)

    there is no builtin way to shorten that time, also restarting pveproxy service is not really a way for this since the ticket is still valid

    what is it you want to achieve exactly?

    Yes, I discovered as much after I posted. :)

    Nominal security -- to terminate idle connections. Basically users who connect and then walk away, forgetting they are connected.
