I can't think of a reason why a managed (or unmanaged for that matter)
switch would affect the timeout. There must be something else
coincidentally going on here. The switch just gets traffic from Port A
to Port B. Firewalls will muck with timeouts; we've dealt with that on
a bunch of our firewalls, but switches and routers typically do not mess
with sessions, in fact they don't even really have any knowledge of a
session - they just take a packet in and send it somewhere else.
Is it all of your users, or just one or 2 specific offices?
