IIS 6 Worker Process Timeouts

Ever wondered why it doesnt matter what you set session.timeout to in asp.net, the session still times out after 20 minutes?

The IIS 6 Worker Process Idle Timeout is default to 20 minutes, and if you are using InProc session state then the session will be lost when the worker process is shut down.

You can change this in the Application Pool Properties.
