How to change the Remote Control timeout length

Version 6

    Description

    Remote control sessions timeout if there is no interaction in the viewer after 10 minutes.

     

    Resolution

    To increase the timeout change the following registry key on the client side:

     

    HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\issuser String: ImagePath Value: %PROGRAMFILES%\LANDesk\LDClient\issuser.exe /SERVICE

     

     

    Manually Changing the Registry Key

    Manually changing this value is usually a quick solution for one client, however if you want this to happen to all clients, the registry key should be deployed.

     

    To change this value manually follow these steps:

     

    1. Double click the value ImagePath.


    2. Add the following parameter to the string but replace [minutes] with the value in minutes:
       
      /a[minutes]
       
      For example, to set the timeout to 30 minutes, use /a30.

      HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\issuser String: ImagePath Value: %PROGRAMFILES%\LANDesk\LDClient\issuser.exe /SERVICE /a30

       



     

    Note:To set the client so that it never times out use /a0.
