Windows Client - Dont autologin

Post by mphayesuk » Fri Jan 14, 2022 3:03 pm

Hi all, is there a way to stop the Windows client from auto-login.

So as soon as you hit connect it tries to login, I would want it to present the login box and wait for input.

The reason is, we use MFA via RADIUS so auto-login just returns failed authentication and at the moment it keeps on trying so after 10 attempts the user account is locked out.

Thanks in advance.

The same here.

It ended by setting the lockout value to 100.000 - effectively disabling this feature.
People can be very ignorant, they have no problem ignoring the continous retry popup for 10000+ times.

I have no idea, but if you find a solution, tell me.

Thanks for the reply nobody12, I have done the same thing as you, set the retry timeout to its max which is 300 seconds and set the retry limit to 1.

This must be an easy fix in teh software to say if its RADIUS then do not attempt to auto connect, or as you say if its set to not auto-connect then why is it doing it.

Again, thanks for your reply and if I get anywhere I will let you know.
