Check the man page for ftpaccess

limit-time {*|anonymous|guest} <minutes>
Limit the total time a session can take. By default, there is no limit. Real users are never limited.

This must depend on the version of wu-ftpd that are you using. Our man page says that -t <timeout> sets the default timeout and -T <timeout> set the max timeout. But we are using an older version. And btw, our ftpaccess file does not have a limit-time.

Sorry, I almost always go to the source - WU-FTPD has the latest version documented on their web page.

Also, you might want to look at the Security problems with anything older than the latest version (version 2.6.2).

The man page on their site still documents the -t and -T options. I'm not sure if they still work or not...
