Have Kiosk ThinClient reboot after a set elapsed time

Post#1 by colingchong » 25 Apr 2017, 03:02

Hello,

I am moving well into having my Kid's Computer Lab Kiosk ThinClient ready for deployment. I was wondering if there was a way that the client could reboot or restart the session after a set time.

The kids are told that they can be on the computers for 35 mins at a stretch and on the Windows setup I have a timer to Log them off after the 35 minutes has elapsed.
The timer countdown is visible so that they know how long they have left.

Is this possible?

Lord Bless

Hello Colin,

You could use this parameter:

Timer would require customized build:

BTW: please post in kiosk section of the forum.

Thanks
