Ending a session

When you end a session with an Remote Control on-demand target, all related files and directories are deleted.

About this task

You can end a remote control session with an on-demand target in the following ways:

  • Click the Connection icon in the taskbar.
  • Click the X in the upper right of the controller window.
Click Yes to quit the session.


The session ends and the files and directories that are associated with the on-demand target are deleted. The on-demand target binary file, the configuration file, and the installation directory, with all of its contents are deleted. The on-demand target trace file is also deleted unless you selected to save it on the target. For more information about saving the log file, see Saving the session log file.

The target user can press Pause on their keyboard or click the connection icon to end the session. If the target user closes the session, it ends immediately.

Note: If the session is interrupted by a non-user event, for example, a network failure, the trace file is not deleted. Use the trace file for debugging purposes.
