I would assume the timer starts as soon as a socket operation such as a get, post occurs and resets on the next operation.

Are you running into timeout issues ?

subject: [WEB400] Http Session timeout clock

Hello all,
Need some helps on a couple of questions regarding http session timeout
clock, thanks in advance

1) Am I correct to say that the time-out clock of a http session starts when
the Http Session becomes inactive (passivated)?

2) I'm assuming that a session timeout clock is cleared when requester
submits a http post to the server. Does the timeout clock starts again as
soon as the server received the post or does it starts right after it
returns the respond back to the requester?
