How do I increase or change the command line interface (CLI) timeout? The SGOS command line interface (CLI) session times out and closes There has been a period of inactivity on the CLI The CLI timeout is too short and needs to be increased
When you have a CLI session, that session remains open as long as there is activity. If you leave the session idle, the connection eventually times out and you must reconnect. The default timeout is five (5) minutes. You can set the timeout and other session-specific options using the line-vty command. For information about using this command, see the ProxySG Command Line Interface guide.
Here is an example of how to view your current line-vty configuration and how to change your CLI to two hours (120 minutes):
>enable Enable Password: #config t Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CTRL-Z. #(config)line-vty #(config line-vty)view Terminal characteristics: Line timeout: 5 minutes Line width: 90 characters Screen length: 35 lines Telnet transparent: no #(config line-vty)timeout 120 ok #(config line-vty)exit #(config)exit #
