VMWare View 4 Software Client disconnects when idle

Hello Everyone,

I am using VMWare View Client 4.0.1 build-2333023 to connect to a virtual desktop.  I am connecting with PCoIP.  If my desktop session is idle for a short time (less than 30 minutes) my client will disconnect from my desktop.  When I reconnect the desktop is as I left it.  I am trying to figure out what governs the idle disconnect time in VMWare View when using PCoIP.

Thanks to all

Hi, the pcoip protocol has an idle timeout disconnect. Add the following reg entry to the vm:

“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\VMware, Inc.\VMware VDM\Agent\Configuration\VdmConnectionTicketTimeout

Add a dword of around 4000. Adjust this figure accordingly. If you are not fussed about an idle disconnect then just set it to 15000.

There is a gpo for this setting as well.

Thanks

TSher,

Thanks for the information.  I got the ADM files from my connection broker and I see the GPO setting.  I really appreciate the help.
