Is there a way to ping a remote desktop?
« on: March 21, 2019, 06:21 AM »
Hello!

I log in to a remote desktop via Citrix and after some inactivity it locks itself.

Is there a way to auto-ping regularly it so that it stays active?

Thanks!

There is software that mimics moving the mouse, so when in a remote session, it won't go lock itself:

1.Click "Start," type "command" into the search field and then choose "Command Prompt" from under Programs.
2.Type "ping
  • " (without quotation marks) into Command Prompt. Replace "
  • " with the IP address or hostname of the target computer.

3.Press "Enter" to ping the remote computer. The results should look similar to the following, although with a different address and values.
