From what I can tell from the documentation and the comments in the
supplied default configuration file, idled only acts on shell sessions
but will not affect, say, secure FTP sessions.
Am I right about that? If so, is there a way to also get idle timeouts
for remote, non-shell sessions?
I have a remote user who typically has both a shell and a secure FTP
session and who routinely forgets to log out of either before shutting
down his computer. These sessions sit around forever and require manual
cleanup and it would be nice to get automatic termination for them all.
