Can you change the default timeout for an RTC 4.0. Floating Licence?

Hi,
if a customer has two employes using one RTC Floating Licence:
If one employee holds the licence he has to log out to return the license. If not it is going to be held for 120 minutes, right?
See: https://jazz.net/forum/questions/51488/connection-timeout-and-floating-license
So far so good - but can you change this default time-out?

The default timeout can be increased (using the "license checkout time" property in the Server Advanced_Properties page), but it cannot be decreased.

Note that there are a couple of reasons for this:

- Decreasing the checkout time would increase the load on the license server

- Decreasing the checkout time would effectively allow more users to share a single floating license, which would require increasing the cost of a floating license (to achieve flat revenue).

Thanks, Geoffrey, ok the default timeout can not be decreased. Can it be increased?
