Session reliability and automatic reconnection

Use this policy to control how the client behaves when a network failure causes a dropped connection.

If you select "Enable" and then choose a check box for "Enable session reliability" and/or "Enable automatic reconnection," the client attempts to reconnect to a server.

The "Enable session reliability" selection enables reconnection to an SSL/TLS server. Support for this setting depends on the SSL server configuration. The "Enable automatic reconnection" setting enables auto reconnection. If both options are enabled, session reliability has precedence. If session reliability is unable to reconnect, auto reconnection tries to connect. If "Enabled" is selected, but you do not choose one of the check boxes, the policy is not enforced.

Use Transparency Level option to control transparency level applied to XA/XD session window during session reliability reconnection period.
- 0 means, XA/XD session window will be turned to black window
- 100 means, no transparency layer will be applied (frozen screen)

Some proxy servers automatically disconnect connections that are idle for a certain length of time. This can cause client sessions to be disconnected when not in use. A server-side option "ICA Keep-Alive" is available to send extra data packets during periods of inactivity that can be used prevent proxies from closing connections.
