Terminate Session

Can anyone tell me how to terminate a users session when they leave my site? They can move onto a different site and use the back button to get back into their session on my site. How do I fix this?

Matt,
If they just navigate away from the site, you can't prevent this. There is no way to know they left the site.

This question would fit better in our servlets forum.
