wu-ftp session timeout howto?

OS: Linux RH 7.3
FTP: wu-ftp configured through /etc/xinetd.d/wu-ftp AND

Internal access only (NOT A PUBLIC FTP SERVER)

Problem: Session is automatically terminated after 15 min of inactivity (default setting).

My question is how can I set this value to 1-2 hours.

Do "man ftpaccess" look at the timeout values and enter the values you want into /etc/ftpaccess

RTFM: 'man ftpd'

Modify /etc/xinet.d/wu-ftpd:

server_args = -l -a -t 3600
[one hour]

server_args = -l -a -t 7200
[two hours]

Restart xinetd: '/etc/rc.d/init.d/xinetd restart'
