Keep RDP session alive

Post by greavette » Sun Jul 07, 2019 2:31 pm

Hello Team,

I have a use case whereby one of my workstations is used my multiple employees under the same profile (user account). I currently use a raspberry Pi and I have a script that automatically logs into a windows virtual machine. I then use Cron to keep the RDP session alive. This is important for us for when we patch the windows VM during our weekend maintenance window. After reboot we want the raspberry Pi thin client to automatically reconnect for us at the workstation.

1. Does wtware have this feature?
2. Does wtware allow me console access to create a script file and add a Cron job myself?

Thank you.

1. I don't understand. Did you already try wtware? What does it do? And what should it do?
2. No.

Hello,

Yes I've installed and tried wtware. I'm not sure what you don't understand for my question #1. What I'm asking for is to have my my wtware Raspberrry Pi automatically reconnect to the RDP session I've set for it.

For example, my wtware Raspberry Pi is connected to a Windows virtual machine and used throughout the day.
In the evening I patch the Windows virtual machine and reboot the VM. This disconnects the wtware Raspberry Pi that was connected to this Windows VM.
I'm not onsite so I can't go to the wtware Raspberry Pi to reconnect it to the Windows virtual machine. So I want the wtware Raspberry Pi to autoconnect to the Windows virtual machine as soon as it comes back from it's reboot.

Is there a way to set wtware to auto-reconnect to an RDP session and to keep trying to connect to this RDP session indefinitely.

Thank you.

Reproduce this problem. Boot WTware with your config, connect (let's skip full working day) to this Windows VM, then reboot the VM.

What will wtware display on sccreen?

Save and show me the log after you reboot the VM: https://wtware.com/logs.html

Perhaps

Code: Select all

onerror = 60
will do the task?
