Suggestions needed for protected urls

    We are using Plesk v 8.6 protected url's via the plesk control panel. So therefore when someone clicks on our site, they are asked for a username and password.

    The problem is if the user walks away from the machine, then there is always a chance someone else accesses the material. So I was wondering if there is some timer to auto reset if a user was non-active or some way to implement a logout facility.

    Does anyone here have any ideas to allow a user to log out of a link?

    1. Before reboot of a browser this authorisation will operate. It is constructed on base IIS auth modules.
    2. As all browsers allow to remember logins and passwords this timeout is not useful. Anyone can login again with stored password.
    3. And there is one simple rule - lock your workstation when you leave it :)
