Description

This command sets the interval that the router waits for traffic before closing the connection, i.e., the amount of time the line can be idle. The timeout period is specified in minutes. The output keyword tells the router to use both input and output traffic to reset the counters. If you omit this keyword, only the input traffic on the line causes a counter reset.
