WebGUI timeout broken / crazy. Is it configurable to be more than 1 minute?

  • I am not sure if its broken or crazy, but I am having the webgui timeout in sometimes as little as 1 minute or less.
    Is this configurable? I could not find any timeout setting for the webgui.

    Its very annoying to have it time out sometimes during the creation of a firewall rule, forcing me to redo it all over again. Has been happening for a month or more but I have been too busy to ask about it. Any ideas on increasing the timeout? Ideally it would be 10-20 minutes at minimum.

    the problem is easily reproducible for me.

    1. log in, and go to firewall rules
    2. let it sit for 1 minute and 5 seconds or so
    3. click any other control or tab on the PFSENSE webgui
    4. the timeout occurs, forcing me to log in again.

  • It's 4 hours by default, and is configurable under System>User Manager, Settings tab. Unless you've set it to 1 minute or something equally crazy, it's likely doing that because your browser is losing/deleting the auth cookie.

  • ah. THANK YOU! I couldn't find it.

    It was set to 1 minute :P
