8.5. Procedure – Creating and editing protocol-level HTTP settings


HTTP settings determine the parameters of the connection on the protocol level, including timeout value, and so on. Complete the following procedure to create a new HTTP settings profile or edit an existing one.


Modifying the HTTP settings is recommended only to advanced users. Do not modify these settings unless you exactly know what you are doing.


  1. Navigate to the Settings tab of the HTTP Control menu item and click to create a HTTP setting profile. Enter a name for the profile (for example http_special).

  2. Click to display the parameters of the connection.

  3. Modify the parameters as needed. The following parameters are available:

    • Idle timeout: Timeout value for the session in milliseconds. To avoid early timeout, set it to a larger value, for example a week (604800000 milliseconds).


      Determining if a connection is idle is based on the network traffic generated by the connection, not the activity of the user. For example, if an application or the taskbar of a graphical desktop displays the time which is updated every minute, it generates network traffic every minute, negating the effects of timeout values greater than one minute and preventing PSM from closing the connection.

    • Session timeout: Timeout value for the session in seconds.

    • Enable pre channel check: Select this option to evaluate the connection and channel policies before establishing the server-side connection. That way if the connection is not permitted at all, PSM does not establish the server-side connection.


      This option cannot be disabled.

  4. Click .

  5. Select this settings profile in the HTTP settings field of your connections.
