How long is the timeout interval of the AR router after users log in

10

By default, the timeout interval of the AR router is 5 minutes.
The AR router supports the timeout interval. The procedure is as follows:
1. Run the idle-timeout minutes [ seconds ] command in the user view to set the timeout interval of disconnection.
2. If AAA authentication is configured, you need to run the local-user < user-name > idle-timeout < minutes > [ < seconds > ] command in the AAA view after running the idle-timeout command to enable disconnection of idle users. After the configuration is complete, the system can disconnect the user from the VTY interface when the timeout interval expires. You are advised to set the timeout interval to 10-15 minutes in the user interface.
Note: To disable the disconnection function in the user interface, run the idle-timeout 0 command.
If the idle disconnection function is not enabled for VTY users, other users may fail to use idle connections.

How long is the timeout interval for an online user who does not perform any operations
The default timeout interval is 5 minutes. The timeout interval is configurable for routers. To configure the timeout interval, perform the following operations: Run the idle-timeout minutes [ seconds ] command to configure the timeout interval in the user interface view. If AAA authentication is configured, run the local-user user-name idle-timeout minutes [ seconds ] in the AAA view to enable disconnection of a local user after you run the idle-timeout command. After the configuration is complete, the system can disconnect the user from the VTY interface when the timeout period expires. You are advised to set the timeout period to 10-15 minutes.

If the idle cut function is disabled for users who log in to the VTY interface, other users may fail to obtain idle connections.

How to set the timeout interval of the connection on an AR
You can set the timeout interval of the connection on an AR through the command line. By default, the timeout interval of the connection is 5 minutes. You can also set the timeout interval through the command line. The procedure is as follows: For example, if you want to set the timeout interval to 9 minutes and 30 seconds, run the idle-timeout command in the user interface view: [Huawei] user-interface console 0 [Huawei-ui-console0] idle-timeout 9 30 Note: If the timeout interval is set to 0, the system does not automatically terminate the connection unless the user manually disconnects it.

Method used to configure the timeout interval of L2TP users on the AR

[Huawei] aaa
[Huawei-aaa] local-user user1 idle-timeout 30

How do I configure the timeout interval for a user connection on a WLAN device
If a user does not perform any operation after logging in to a WLAN device, the user interface is always occupied, resulting in a waste of resources. In this case, run the idle-timeout minutes [seconds] command in the user interface view. After this command is executed, the system automatically disconnects idle users connected for a long time. You are advised to set the timeout interval to 10�?5 minutes. If AAA authentication is configured and the local-user idle-timeout command is executed in the AAA view to configure the timeout interval of a user disconnection, the timeout interval configured in the AAA view has a higher priority than that configured in the user view. If the timeout interval for a user disconnection is not configured in the AAA view or the undo local-user idle-timeout command is executed, the timeout interval configured in the user view using the idle-timeout command takes effect. For example, set the timeout interval to 1 minute and 30 seconds. system-view [HUAWEI] user-interface console 0 [HUAWEI-ui-console0] idle-timeout 1 30 //By default, a user is disconnected if the user does not perform any operation within 10 minutes.
