OpenVPN | configure inactivity timeout

Post by Aeden1991 » Fri Jul 13, 2018 10:48 am

I'm using a Synology DS218j as a VPN server and it works perfectly. Only I want to configure an inactivity timeout when users are not using their computers for a x amount of time. For example they are going to grab a cup of coffee and they are inactivity for 1 minute the VPN connection will be terminated and they should reenter their credentials.

How can I configure this? I looked on the internet, but cannot find a solution for this request.
