    You can change the specific users under the home directory
    "~/.bash_profile"this file, plus
    "export TMOUT = 3600"

    You can also use the:

    if [ -n "$SSH_CONNECTION" ]; then export TMOUT=300; fi
    Logout ssh user automatically after specified time
    This will check if a user is logged in using ssh and will log out the user automatically after the specified time in seconds without data retrieval on the server side.
    Will work with bash and zsh so put it into your sourced shell file on the server side.
    Be aware that users can change this themselves as it's just a envoronment variable.
