I have read the CERN documentation on server configuration and am happy
about setting up authentication of users/directory accesses etc.

However, the way that CERN seems to work is purely on IP addresses. i.e.

say someone is authenticated on a.b.c.d then while CERN is up and
running then that IP address is always OK.

Is it possible to for CERN timeout that IP address after a certain
length of inactivity forcing re-authentication. I know that HTML headers

can contain expiry information on a page but this is not really quite
what I want.

I am effectively using CERN as an INTRANET server and want CERN to
timeout client connections. N.B The Timeout parameters I have read about

in the documentation seem to relate to a dialog session between server
and client which is not the same thing.

Thanks for any help you can offer,

Jon Ward
