ssl vpn disconnect timeout

I have what i thought was a fairly simple question:
I'd like sslvpn users to have to be disconnected and have to reconnect after a certain period of time..from what i can tell, the connection stays active forever. I did some research and went down several rabbit holes that didn't take me where i needed to go. I have several models of fireboxes, and use the sslvpn that connects to AD on almost all.

I'd be happy to read if pointed in the right direction.

thanks in advance,

    The SSLVPN sends keep-alive packets so there is no real timeout option here.
    Not sure if you set an authentication max session time in AD if that would apply to a SSLVPN session.

    If you want SSLVPN to not be available at certain hours, then you can set a Schedule on the WatchGuard SSLVPN policy.

    Understood. Thanks.
