License timeout is set in the Options file to determine how long a product session can be idle before the license is reclaimed by the license server. When you set this flag in the Options file, a user's license is reclaimed by the license server if the product is idle on a workstation for more than the timeout period you define.
If a user's license is lost because of the idle timeout, the product attempts to claim a new license once the user uses the product again. If no license is available, the user can save work before the product shuts down.
the Options file, enter the following syntax on its own line (with
TIMEOUT entered in uppercase, as shown):
In the TIMEOUT syntax, “feature_code” is the name of the product (referred to in the INCREMENT line in the license file), and “n” is the number of seconds before an inactive license is reclaimed by the license server.
