    Quick one - Is it possible to change the timeout settings for an RDP connection to a Win2003 server? As in if the connection has been idle for a certain length of time it automatically logs the user off. I want to increase the idle time before that happens.
    Thanks in advance!

    Easy. If it's not defined by group policy.

    Go to Start - Programs - Administrative Tools - Terminal Services Configuration on your server. Right click on your RDP connection and go to Sessions. Set it there.

    @ttm you are indeed right. The default is to stay connected afaik. Unless otherwise stated in GPO.


    Anyway, assuming its not specified differntly in the GPO you can tweak stuff here (as mickoneill30 mentioned):
