Ending remote session locks the remote computer

Hello All

In the settings, I have set at one time to lock the screen of the remote computer when i disconnect. But now i have turned it off again yet it still locks every time I disconnect.

Anyone know a way to fix this?


I have not ran across this problem before, but you may need to remove the accessing client and delete the install folder on the client, then try re-installing.

I had an old access client that got updated to a newer simple help version that some settings got stuck on and had to completely remove it and add it back. It has only ever happened a couple of times, but it can happen. I think I have been using SimpleHelp for 8 years or so, and its happened maybe 3 times to me. But Simplehelp has also gone through some major revisions :slight_smile:

OK thanks for the information. This is what seems is happening.
I have already uninstalled the software and reinstalled but that didn’t do it.

Do you happen to know where the install folder is located on a Windows and Linux machine?


I dont remember for linux machines. Maybe /etc/JWrapper-Remote Access ? Cant remember and Dont have my linux machine up atm.

For windows its: C:\ProgramData\JWrapper-Remote Access
and C:\Program Files\SimpleHelpUtilities

When you say you have it configured in the settings, are you referring to your individual Technician preferences for you account? i.e. when you logged into the Tech Console -> settings -? Session Settings?

If so what is set at the Technician Group level from the Administration Tab? potentially the group that your Technician is a member of has that option set which is overwriting your account settings.

Also if you are in multiple Tech groups there could be a conflict of the End of Session options are set differently.

Are you talking about these settings? I don’t see any settings here that are related.

Yes i found it… It is in Administration settings -> Groups -> and then under permissions of the admin group.

Thanks for all the suggestions !

Ben, yes I was referring to Administration Tab -> Groups then under the End of Session settings where you can control if the remote machine does nothing, locks desktop or logs out.

Glad you found it.
