Opened Sessions

Description

 

The Opened Sessions tab shows currently running sessions by type, and for the local machine only. You can give the focus to an opened session by double-clicking it from the list. All of the embedded sessions are listed, and the external sessions will appear if Remote Desktop Manager is able to discover the specific type of session.

With the SQL Server and Devolutions Online Database data sources, you can monitor currently running sessions, provided that they have been opened within Remote Desktop Manager.

For many reasons beyond our control, it's possible for a session to be terminated without Remote Desktop Manager knowing that this has taken place. This can happen, for example, if Remote Desktop Manager isn't running when another application ends. As a result, any terminated session will remain listed in the log. You may manually mark it as closed via the contextual menu by selecting Flag as Closed.

 

To review a detailed log, double click on a session entry.

 

Hidden Sessions

Some sessions, like SSH Port Forward, can be hidden from the dashboard when the connection is established. When these sessions are hidden, they are not displayed in the Local Sessions. Select Hidden Sessions from the combo box above the entry list to display hidden sessions only.

VPN Groups

Sessions can be configured to use a VPN Group. When multiple session are using the same VPN group, it will appear in this section with the count of opened connections using this VPN group.

Notes

 

Remote Desktop Manager tries to detect opened sessions even if they weren't launched from the application. It uses the name of the process to accomplish this task.

VPN sessions do not appear in the list.
