How do I automatically logoff clients after n minutes of inactivity?

A. The registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters. Add a new variable (Edit - New - Dword value) and call it Disc. Set the value to the number of minutes inactivity wanted. Some network programs constantly communicate with the server (such as mail) so this will not always work. This will only terminate remote connections, to actually logoff from a session use the winexit.scr that comes with the resource kit.
