You can't set an unlimited session timeout, but you can set a really high number here:

    <sessionState timeout="60000" />

If you want people to be logged in for a long time (even indefinitely) then don't use the Session to show someone is logged in, use cookies instead.

You'll need to re-write how your authentication works. The best thing is to use existing frameworks like Membership, or Identity, rather than trying to develop your own.
What John says is true, aware that some systems ignore requests to lengthen the Session timeout because each Session takes server resources, and they cost money. If your session has already been reduced from the default 20 minutes to 6, you are likely to find that your request is ignored.
The longer you set your timeout, the more resources you will use - and do bear in mind that users do not often log out or otherwise signal that they are leaving your site.

Instead, I'd suggest that you might be better off using Cookies which are stored at the client end instead of the Session at all.

Are you using cookie based authentication or Token based authentication ?
