Hi all,

I am working on web application & facing session logout problem after few minutes.

I have set session timeout in web config file as below :

<sessionState timeout="320" cookieless="false" mode="InProc"></sessionState>

Also on iis7 server ,i have set session timeout = 600 mins .

And also set the value for Idle Time-out(minutes) to “600” In advanced settings (Application Pool).

But the session is expire after few minutes, & facing same problem in all browser.

Application is working fine on local server.

Please help me to sort out this problem.

Sorry for poor english.

And thanks in advance.

Once in a past, i faced the SAME PROBLEM, and finally the solution was Windows Re-Installation.. You can try that.

Is it expiring after being idle, or even while there is activity?

Are you using Forms authentication? Can you also post that part of your web.config file?

Based on the details provided, all I can say is:
1. Your app pool is recycling for anything such as inactivity, exception, or configuration
2. You need to have a look again at the values that you mentioned. Is it seconds/minutes everywhere and not all mixed-up?
