Hello everyone,

I have developed a questionare application via MCC3 design pattern.

User logins via form. Then I keep it's infos in a session. But it ends very quickly (approximately 10 minutes. ) There are over 100 questiones so time is not enough. Is there any way to increase that?

Things that I tried.

edited web config.

<system.web>
    <sessionState mode="InProc" timeout="30" />
  </system.web>


edited app config.

(write one more method to manage sessin state and timeout)

You should not extend the session - each user instance increases the memory usage on teh server, which can't be disposed of until the session ends. See MSDN: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms525473(v=vs.90).aspx[^]
And bear in mind that each time the client communicates with the server, it resets the Session timeout - so if you are running out, it's because there is nothing happening as far as the server can tell!

If you are having problems with client session expiry, then I'd strongly suggest that you use Cookies instead - and let the session die a natural death.

How much time does a cookie have to expire? I can't manage session. There is no problem on local server, but I think there is a problem on IIS.

Up to you - by default it's when the user closes the browser, but it can be sooner or later if you set the expiry date and time.

Thanks for the reply. I have 2 question.

I am using HttpContext.Current.Session["kullanici"] = kontrol; this line of code to set session. How about cookies? There is a problem with 'Response'.

And secondly how can i set cookie time?
