    Hello Paul Raj,

    You can do it by following code :

    <sessionState mode="Custom"
    customProvider="DefaultSessionProvider" Trusted_Connection=yes"
    cookieless="false" timeout="20" />

    Note --> You can set the timeout as per your need. Timeout can be set only in minutes.

    Hope this will help you.

    If you are using ASP.NET 2.0 you have to handle it in the IIS .

    Otherwise you can handle in web.config as follows

    <sessionState mode="InProc" timeout="120" cookieless="false" />

    You can handle it in the "FormsAuthenticationTicket" also
