Server Regained Control on Remote Panel Front Panel

Issue Details

I have a server running an application that I built. When one of my customers was connected to it using the remote front panels they received a message saying 'server regained control'. What causes this popup?


There are a number of reasons why the pop up may appear. These include:
  •  Someone else connects their remote front panel at the same time
  •  A timeout has been set to relinquish the control back to the server
  •  Someone intentionally relinquishes the control back to the server
  •  Someone uses the front panel directly on the server

Additional Information

Remote front panels only allows 1 user to be connected at a time, however an engineer with direct access to the server can use the front panel which will show this message to other connected users.
