FlexLM and changing the amount of time to release licenses.

Good day everyone,
I am fairly certain that I have seen the answer to this out here
before, but I couldn't find it using the search tool for the forums.

How do you change the length of time before a license of Pro/E is
released. We have a couple of users who will log in the morning start up
Pro/E run off to do something else and return near the end of the day to
log out. This means the license is tied up for at least an hour plus, and
we would like FlexLM to automatically drop those licenses after a half
hour to make them available to others.

Thanks for any input or links back to the old threads,

Find where your flexnet is loaded. In your ptc.opt file put in the
option "TIMEOUTALL 1800". 1800 seconds or 30 minutes. There is a
minimum that PTC will allow, and I believe that is 20 minutes.

Thanks to both Mikes. Mike Reece posted to the forum so I did not re-post
his message. Mike Foster replied direct so I have included his response
here.

Thanks to everyone who tried to respond,
