VNC -> Administrative Tools." /> VNC -> Administrative Tools." />
I have not done any large scale testing on this, as we only have 1 machine running Windows with VNC. What I can tell you is, it "caches" the password for the duration of the session, so for instance. Here is how I got myself into trouble.
I logged on as "Administrator". It asked me for a password I did not pay attention at this point I typed in a password Then from a remote workstation I did a VNC connect with that same password and it worked fine I then remotely logged out, and then logged in as a normal user account, and that worked fine I can not reconnect I never ran the "Show Default Settings" icon, and therefore never set the default password. At this point there was no way for me to reconnect via VNC I had to go back to the machine, login as "Administrator", and set the default password, by using the "Show Default Settings" icon.
Now I have not done any more troubleshooting than this, but I would surmise, that if new accounts are created on the Windows machine, that they would "inherit" the password that is set for the Default User, and therefore any new accounts on the machine would have the same default password. Additionally, I'm not sure what the point of this is, unless it is a start at trying to create a password system per user Even if the account that I log-onto has a different VNC connection password Computing Technologies is an IT service provider.
I will check the ports on our firewall the machines running server are Windows so the Windows firewall will not be an issue. This topic has been locked by an administrator and is no longer open for commenting. To continue this discussion, please ask a new question.
I know that's very general, but I've been having a relatively hard time finding any IT related job that isn't basic help desk level one things.

When last client disconnects In a helpdesk scenario, you normally "Do Nothing" when disconnecting. When administering servers via remote control, you might wish to either "Lock Workstation" or "Logoff Workstation" for security reasons. Query on incoming connection If enabled, every time someone tries to connect via UltraVNC, a pop-up dialog informs the user and asks the user to either accept or refuse the attempt.
Configure the timeout for the dialog window and what action should be taken if the user clicked no button until timeout. This can be configured by "Disable Viewer inputs" or "Disable Local inputs". Multi viewer connections Here you can configure the behavior if multiple viewers attempt to connect to the same UltraVNC Server.

Asked 4 years, 6 months ago. Modified 4 years, 6 months ago. Viewed 10k times. I have a somewhat strange to me problem and I'm unsure of how to precisely pinpoint the issue. If the laptop is plugged into the wall, I rarely, if ever, get these disconnects. Improve this question. Ben Richards.
Ben Richards Ben Richards When you were looking at the device manager settings, did you look into the power managing tab to see if it laptop would power off device in order to save power? Also, have you updated your wifi drivers? There is no Power Management tab visible in the properties for the Wi-Fi adapter. Besides, if the solution was so simple, I'd have expected the same unstable behavior when doing the same thing at work.
Alas, I did not. BenRichards Click on the battery icon in the taskbar an make sure that power saver isn't switched on. Try this and see if the problem persists — undo. I could manually create one but since I didn't see any power settings that appear to apply to the Wireless adapter, I'm not sure if it would be equivalent. Add a comment. Sorted by: Reset to default.

Good luck figuring it out, and please report back here when you do, I'm curious to know the answer. My first step in troubleshooting would be diagnosing where the cause of the issue lies. If the issue is gone, we know the cause is with Windows.
Maybe it's some incompatibility with your WiFi infrastructure. Try with a different ISP. If you have a mobile data plan and are sure your VNC setup isn't data-intensive, then you could use it as a mobile hotspot. You already said the issue doesn't happen at work and happens at home, but have you checked at another place? I'd try somewhere with a different ISP and router - a friend's house, a library, Starbucks That Brazilian Guy That Brazilian Guy 6, 10 10 gold badges 62 62 silver badges 99 99 bronze badges.

After these changes you will notice that the way applications are presented on your xenith client is different as before.
I think it is some sort of compatiblity mode for using webinterfaceserver instead of a storefrontserver. But i find the new layout much better as before. For me, this is the perfect solution for our problem :. EDIT: You have to activate this legacy support on your storefront servers for your store to get this work. I had a similar issue on firmware version 2. Have you tried 2. They may have re-introduced the bug in 2.
Yes, we also had firmware version 2. Could you reproducing the issue in some specific cases? Yes at the time we experienced the issue in 2. Similarly, if a disconnect timeout was set on the Desktop Group you'd see the same behavior if a user got booted off. The only resolve we had for the issue was to reboot all the registered machines in that VDA that were not in use.
After moving to 2. Though with 2. Other than that though 2. Are you saying that you experienced the disconnects on 2. If so, I'd likely look into packet loss or possible implementing session reliability so the connections don't drop. The thing is i tried every possible option of disconnecting a session on my own to reproduce the issue. Sometimes the disconnects are also there if a user takes over his session from another wyse client. But often enough this works fine. Only after logging of the session, the problem is gone.
I played with session reliability settings because a had similar problems in another environment where deactivating session reliability helps. I had a feeling, that loadbalancing the xml services and storefront http had something todo with this but i dont know where to start troubleshooting because of the reproducing problem.
Any chance you're using smartcards for your users to authenticate? Also, not sure what your outlook is for 7. Using smartcards will not be an option for the next years. But we have updated our farm to 7. Because of a power blackout yesterday many users were disconnected from their sessions and we got some of the errors i described in the first post.
I have taken some screenshots from the error displayed on the wyse cliens and the DDC on reconnect. I also get the following errors you have seen in your last post with the attached screenshots, as well as getting booted from a session that is reconnecting. The only solution that fixes the re-connected session issue, is to apply multiple delivery groups to one user. Forcing a disconnected session and re-connecting is then stable. Does your test user have multiple delivery groups?
I stuggled to replicate this issue until I assigned just one DG to my test user. My Test-User has multiple delivery groups. But most of our normal users have only one delivery group assigned. So there is definitly a difference.
I will try if i can reproduce the issue with my test-user assinging him only one delivery group. As i remeber correctly the desktops will always reconnect automatically into the disconnected sessions once the user logged in.
