Hello everyone, I’m basically going nuts here. I need someone else to confirm my theory.
With windows 10 (or maybe even 8.1 but I never really tried…), it is not possible to have a single-session that you can juggle between RDP and regular physical login - but only on the Linx. Or maybe on any small tablet, or maybe even any tablet at all?
To elaborate - I have W10 Pro on my real PC and W10 Home on a virtual machine. On the VM, I use a technically-legal tool called “RDP Wrapper” -> https://github.com/binarymaster/rdpwrap/issues/26 (legality question).
On both, I am able to get the sought behavior, i.e.:
Log in from RDP, open X programs.
Log in from RDP again, X programs are still open and they have been running and doing things as they were, no problem
Log in directly on the machine itself, X programs are still running, the session is all good and until you reboot or log out as a user from windows, it will keep running.
But what I get with Linx 7 (I tried it with both W10 Home using RDP Wrapper and W10 Pro)
Log in from RDP, open X programs
Log in from RDP - either a) get a fresh session or b) get disconnected immediately after logging in.
I tried every possible setting that I could think of to see what I could do about this, but it seems like it must be something based on the fact that it’s a hardware-related special case, because it works just fine on both home and pro on my computer.
I tried doing a complete clean reinstall of the tablet, also verified the system files, nothing. No issues at all. All of the versions are the same; fully updated, LEGAL windows systems in all four cases.
The device was set to not go into sleep mode, no difference. ConnectedStandby was disabled, no difference.
Microsoft support was completely unhelpful, but I never expected much
Can anyone confirm this for me with their linx / lamina? Just enable remote desktop and try logging in, then just close the RDP client (do not log out!) and try logging back in. Leave a note with which system you used and whether or not you were successful.
