session timeout doesn't work for FBA sites - sharepoint 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a new Sharepoint Server which uses Sharepoint Server 2010. It runs on Windows Server 2008.

    We are using it as a Webserver and need to deploy a timeout for all users who access it for security purposes.

    Currently it is configured to use Windows Based Authentication on port 80 although we have tried to change this and set up a Form Based Authentication (FBA) site on different port and set the timeout settings for this also but it does not work.

    We have tried using the timeout features of IIS and Sharepoint itself with a FBA setup and the user account still does not time out as required.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Note: We have visited the following link for solution but we don't know if we have a April 2011 Update installed on our sharepoint server as we are on SP2010 Build Version 14.0.6137.5002
