Windows 2003/Citrix - Automatically Locking Console after 10 Minutes
Posted on 2004-10-28
I have Citrix Metaframe XPe running on Windows 2003. When my users login to my published applications, after 10 minutes of inactivity,
the console will automatically lock, forcing them to type in their password again to gain access back to the application. (i.e. Typical of the default setting in Win2K3). Although I have modified the registry and set the screensaver to none under HKEY_USER and made the change under display settings this still happens to the users. If am logged in at the server console itself, the screensaver will never come on or the console lock. It only happens to the users using the published applications and/or citrix desktop. I have opened a ticket with Citrix and have not heard back from them yet, so I am making an attempt here to resolve this problem. Yes, I know having the console to lock is a good security thing, but this is a setting that GM wants turned off for our users on the production floor. Apparently they struggle at retyping their password in and end up locking theirselves out for good. Any help would be appreciated.
