    OptionFunction Your Action

    NCP Auto-Select

    Allows you to specify internal protocols to communicate between the Secure Access device server and client applications.

    Select one of the following options from the drop-down list:

    • Auto-select enabled— Secure Access device uses NCP for most client/server communications and then switches to standard NCP when necessary.
    • Auto-select disabled—Secure Access device uses standard NCP for client/server communications. This option is primarily provided for backwards compatibility.

    Read Connection Timeout (seconds)

    Allows you to specify the timeout interval for Java clients (15 to 120 seconds). Note that this value does not apply to user inactivity in client applications.

    Set the idle connection interval.

    Idle Connection Timeout (minutes)

    Allows you to specify the idle connection interval. This timeout interval determines how long the Secure Access device maintains idle connections for client-side Windows Secure Access methods.

    Set the idle connection interval.
