XDMCP does not have a feature that can prevent disconnection by timeout. But, you can use a command that periodically sends data from or to the remote host such as ping or top to achieve the same result.

Also, SSH has the keep-alive feature that prevents disconnection from timeout. Try opening the desktop by following the instruction in the following page:

As you said that i can run top or ping command to avoid disconnection of the xsession.

say suppose i had opened the XDMCP xsession connected to linux server, and opened more than terminal in that linux sesssion,
then is it enough if i run the top command in just one terminal, and leave the other terminals idle, without getting the xsession disconnected due to inactivity timoeout.

thanks

It is usually enough to have just one terminal running ping or top command. But, this depends on the firewall/gateway that disconnects the connection. Best way to find out is to actually give it a try.
