How Users Start Sessions from the Reflection Management Server

This procedure explains how end users start Reflection emulation sessions created in Administrative WebStation.

To start a session

  1. Click the URL provided by your Administrator, which uses the format http://servername:port/rweb.
  2. Provide any necessary information to authenticate to the Reflection Management Server.
  3. From the Links List, select the session you want to open. If the session is configured to use tokens for user authorization, you must connect before the specified expiration period. Within that expiration period, the session can disconnect and reconnect using the same token. After the token expires, you must restart Reflection by clicking the session in the Links List to retrieve a new, valid token.

    The session profile and associated files are downloaded to your computer the first time the session is accessed. An updated session profile is downloaded to the client only if the previous file was deleted or if the option Overwrite end user files was selected in the Session Manager.

    After the session opens in Reflection and makes the connection, the status icon shows a connection to the Reflection Security Proxy Server instead of the host.

    Note: Saving a local copy of a session created in Administration WebStation is generally not recommended. If the session is modified from the Reflection Management Server, the local copy will not include the modifications.
