How do I configure the timeout interval for a user connection on a WLAN device

3

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.

How to set the connection timeout interval for Telnet users on the switch where AAA is configured
You can specify idle-timeout in the VTY view to set the connection timeout interval for Telnet users. If Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) is configured, the configured value of idle-timeout in the VTY view does not take effect. Instead, the value of idle-timeout configured in the AAA view takes effect.

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.

On a WLAN device, run the local-user user-name access-limit max-number command in the AAA view to configure the maximum number of connections that can be established by a user.

How to configure the timeout interval for VRRP packets
In a VRRP group, if the backup device does not receive VRRP packets from the master device within the timeout interval, it considers that the master device fails, and then become the master.

CE series switches do not support setting of the VRRP protocol packet timeout interval. The VRRP packet timeout interval is calculated as follows: (3*Advertisement_Interval) + Skew_time. Advertisement_Interval is the interval for sending VRRP protocol packets. The default value is 1s. Skew_Time = (256-Priority)/256 , whose value can be 0 or 1. You can run the vrrp vrid timer advertise command to change the interval for sending VRRP protocol packets to adjust the timeout interval.

After the configuration is complete, the TimerConfig field in the command output of the display vrrp verbose command shows the configured interval for sending VRRP protocol packets.

Method used to configure the timeout interval of L2TP users on the AR
The timeout interval of L2TP users can be configured using the local-user <user-name> idle-timeout <minutes> [ seconds ] command. For example, the timeout interval of user1 is 30 minutes.
