Session restarts

Windows 2012 - Session restarts after 30 seconds at login screen

With vSpace 8.x installed on Windows Server 2012 R2 and autoconnect configured, the session will end and then log back in every 30 seconds. This is built into Windows and the timer can be modified by adding a new entry to the registry:

Just add the LogonTimeout REG_DWORD value to:

 HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\NC-Vspace 

and set it to the desired time (in seconds). 

This is a well-known registry entry, but up to 2008 R2 its instance located in HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server\WinStations\RDP-Tcp was influencing both protocols: RDP and UXP. Now, from 2012, a separate instance needs to be created in NC-Vspace key for the NComputing UXP protocol.
