17.10 Automatic Reconnection

If the Automatic Reconnection feature is enabled on the Windows remote desktop server, the Windows connector automatically re-establishes a network connection if it is unexpectedly disconnected. When you are disconnected from a Window session, the Windows connector displays an icon on your screen, as shown in Figure 17.10, “Automatic Reconnection Icon”.

By default, the Windows connector attempts to reconnect six times before ending the connection. You can control the number of reconnects through the -U number option of the uttsc command. Specifying -U 0 disables the use of the Automatic Reconnection feature.


You can also use the -S timeout option, in seconds, to specify the interval to detect network loss for a reconnect to occur.
