Shutdown, Restart or Log off Automatically at Session Termination

In many cases, it is a good idea to define what happens both to the thin client and the remote machine when a session is terminated.

You can configure your IGEL Linux thin client to log off, shutdown or reboot automatically when a session is terminated:

The following instructions are valid for IGEL Linux version 5.10.100. For lower versions, the menu paths and the features may differ.
  1. Open the setup and go to System > Firmware Customization > Custom Commands > Post Session.
  2. In the Session type menu, select the session type after whose termination the action should take place.
  3. In the Post Session Command menu, select the desired action:
    • Logoff: The user is automatically logged off; a logon method must be defined for this purpose.
    The Logoff option cannot be used if the Appliance Mode is in use.
    • Shutdown/Suspend (System default action): The thin client will be shut down or placed in suspend mode depending on the setting under System > Power Options > Shutdown > selection Default Action. A dialog allowing the user to cancel the procedure will be shown in the process.
    • Shutdown/Suspend mode (system default action without dialog): The thin client will be shut down or placed in suspend mode depending on the setting under System > Power Options > Shutdown > selection Default Action. The user cannot cancel the procedure.
    • Reboot (with dialog time limit): The thin client will be shut down. A dialog allowing the user to cancel the procedure will be shown in the process.
    • Reboot (without dialog): The thin client will be shut down. The user cannot cancel the procedure.
    • Enter custom command here: Command to be executed
  4. Click Apply or OK.
