I know that we can use the Time-out interval option in the Preferences dialog box to set the time-out (in hours) for our SAS Studio session. If I (SAS administrator) want to increase this interval for everyone at my site to 4hours, how can i do this ? is it in App server(/sas/SAS94BASEP/SAS_94/SASStudioBasic/3.4) or Web/midtier server(/sas/SAS94WP/SAS_94/SASStudioMidTier/3.4/) ?

answering your question, what you ask is normally done on the middle tier as described on:
and for the Single Sign On timeout: http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/bimtag/68217/HTML/default/viewer.htm#p0nc5rk5mnlmwin11xl...
Please note that SAS Studio is not configuredon the same way. As you mention, this is configured on SAS Studio through the UI interface.
Also, there are a couple of hotfixes that might help you. Please refer to:
Problem Note 55886: SAS® Studio times out in two or three hours regardless of the preference setting: http://support.sas.com/kb/55/886.html
Problem Note 56550: SAS® Studio Mid-Tier enterprise edition times out after 12 hours even if a longer time-out interval has been set: http://support.sas.com/kb/56/550.html
Please let us know if this actually helps you.

Have you tried using the webdms.maxSessionTimeoutInHours configuration property? This property specifies the maximum value for the Session time-out value in the Preferences dialog box. The default value is

Afaik by editing the config file the maximum session length is set. Not the users session length. SAS Studio creates some user-specific configuration files - check personal folder of the users on your app-server ( not mid-tier), but i don't think that an easy way exists to increase session length for all users automatically.
