Auto disconnect versus max idle time

Hello all,


On FM Server, one can set "maximum idle time", and at the same time, at the level of Privilege Sets, one can activate the option "disconnect from server when idle". What's the interplay between these options ?!


I'm asking this because I would like to accomplish something like the following. For people that have only one open database solution running, I'd like to be able to close that upon prolonged inactivity, and quit their local occurrence of the FileMaker client application. Other people might have a second database solution active, and for those I'd like to be able to just close one of them, without quitting their local FileMaker client application, keeping their second database solution "alive". Gee, how stuff like this is sometimes hard to explain; I hope you get the idea.


Thanks for your interest,


Bien amicalement,
