HP Remote Graphics Software Blanking Monitor Disable

Hi

I am trying to disable the remote computer monitor blanking operation as the computer I am remtoely connecting to has a user on it and I want that person to see what I am seeing...

I have tried changing the rgsenderconfig Rgsender.IsBlankScreenAndBlockInputEnabled to 0 but this still does not appear to work...

Below is a copy of the config

My laptop is a HP EliteBook 8760w with an Nvidia Quadro 3000M driver version 320.86  and I am connecting to a Z800 with Nvidia Quadro 2000 driver version 320.49.

Any additional information you need please let me know

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Regards

Andrew

 

##### Hewlett-Packard Remote Graphics Software
##### Sender Properties
##### Uncomment a property to override its default value.

## Sets the maximum image update rate that the Sender transmits to the
## Receiver. If the value is set to zero, the update rate will be unlimited.
# Rgsender.MaxImageUpdateRate=30

## Sets the preferred image CODEC.
## Both the sender and receiver must support the specified CODEC.
## The available CODECs are:
## NC      (HP3) The default since release 5.0
## HP2     The default prior to release 5.0
## JPEG-LS Lossless, available since 5.3.1
# Rgsender.ImageCodec.Preferred=NC

## Enable or disable the sender disconnecting all receivers when the
## primary user logs out.
# Rgsender.IsDisconnectOnLogoutEnabled=1

## Enable or disable RGS connections if the iLO remote console is
## active.  If enabled, simultaneous connections using the iLO remote
## console and RGS are possible which could allow eavesdropping. See
## the User's Guide for more details. Currently, this property is only
## supported on Linux.
# Rgsender.IsIloRemoteConsoleEnabled=0

## Enable or disable easy login connections to non-blades. If this
## property is enabled on a system with a locally attached monitor and
## keyboard, such as a desktop or workstation, easy login connections
## will be possible. This could allow eavesdropping. Normally, this
## property should remain disabled. See the User's Guide for more
## details. Currently, this property is only supported on Windows.
# Rgsender.IsAnonymousConnectionForceEnabled=0

## The methods for detecting image changes on the display. All changes
## are sent to the receiver as image updates.
## The "GPU" uses the GPU hardware to quickly compare one full screen
## to a previous full screen.
## The "Comparitron" method uses the system's CPU to compare one full
## screen to a previous full screen.
## The "ChangeList" method uses, in Windows, the RGS mirror-driver,
## and on Linux, the "Remote Graphics" X server extension to detect
## display changes. Enter the methods in priority order of usage. If
## a method is not currently supported in the system, the next method
## in the list will be tried.
# Rgsender.PreferredDisplayMethods=GPU ChangeList Comparitron

## Enable or disable the collaboration notification dialog
# Rgsender.IsCollaborationNotificationEnabled=1

## Enable or disable session reconnection during session logout or
## Fast User Switching. Supported on Vista and later Windows OSs.
# Rgsender.IsReconnectOnConsoleDisconnectEnabled=1

## Sets the time in seconds to wait for a system logon event to
## complete. If the logon does not occur within "ConsoleLogonTimeout",
## the sender will be shut down.
# Rgsender.ConsoleLogonTimeout=30

## The timeout in msecs at after the connection will be closed.
# Rgsender.Network.Timeout.Error=30000

## The timeout in msecs on dialog boxes, such as the authorization
## dialog.
# Rgsender.Network.Timeout.Dialog=15000

## Determines whether or not the RGS Sender will accept connections
## from RGS Receivers on all network interfaces or not.
# Rgsender.Network.IsListenOnAllInterfacesEnabled=1

## If the Rgsender.Network.IsListenOnAllInterfacesEnabled property is
## set to 0, these properties specify which network interfaces will be
## used to accept connections from RGS Receivers.  On Linux, these
## generally correspond with "eth0", "eth1", etc. On Windows Xp, these
## correspond with the order specified in Control Panel -> Network
## Connections -> Advanced -> Advanced Settings -> Adapters and
## Bindings -> Connections (Note that 1394 Connections and Loopback
## interfaces are ignored and do not affect the numbering of the
## network interfaces).  
# Rgsender.Network.Interface.0.IsEnabled=0
# Rgsender.Network.Interface.1.IsEnabled=0
# Rgsender.Network.Interface.2.IsEnabled=0

## A network interface will only be used to accept connections from RGS
## Receivers if it is enabled using either
## Rgsender.Network.IsListenOnAllInterfacesEnabled or one of the
## Rgsender.Network.Interface.n.IsEnabled properties AND if the IP
## Address associated with that network interface falls within the
## range of IP Addresses specified with this subnet mask (in CIDR
## notation).
# Rgsender.Network.AllowIpAddressSubnet=255.255.255.255/32

## Port used for communication between sender and receiver
# Rgsender.Network.Port=42966
## The mode the HPVelocity driver should operate in upon successful registration.  Default is 3 (Active).
##   0=Off, 2=Monitor, 3=Active
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.Mode=3
## The target loss rate the HPVelocity driver should use.  Default is 3 (0.04%)
##   0=0.4%, 1=0.2%, 2=0.1%, 3=0.04%
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.TargetLossRate=3
## The active network interface that is being used by RGS. Default is eth0.
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.NetworkInterface=eth0
## Packet loss protecion enable.  Default is 1 (enabled).
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.EnablePlp=1
## LiveTCP enable.  Default is 1 (enabled).
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.EnableLiveTcp=1
## LiveTCP latency threshold.  30ms default.
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.LiveTcpLatencyThreshold=30
## LiveTCP congestion control algorithm.
##   0=Aggressive, 1=Friendly
# Rgsender.Network.HPVelocity.LiveTcpCongestionControlAlgorithm=0

## Cause the sender local display to blank and local keyboard and mouse
## input to block when primary user is connected.
# Rgsender.IsBlankScreenAndBlockInputEnabled=0

## Configure the USB ACL files.  There is a ruleset and a schema file.
## Both are required for the ACL functionality to work correctly.  The
## default ruleset allows all USB device connections. The sender
## monitors the ruleset file for changes.  If the ruleset file becomes
## inaccessible, the sender will disconnect USB devices after an error
## period has expired.  This error period is controlled via the
## RulesetErrorTimeout property.  The property is specified in
## milliseconds and defaults to 5 seconds.
# Rgsender.Usb.Acl.RulesetPath=hprDefaultUsbAcl.xml
# Rgsender.Usb.Acl.SchemaPath=hprUsbAcl.xsd
# Rgsender.Usb.Acl.RulesetErrorTimeout=5000

## Remote Clipboard
#  Rgsender.Clipboard.IsEnabled=1

## Enable or disable the Easy Logon Mode of operation to conform to 
## previous RGS releases.
# Rgsender.IsClassicEasyLogonEnabled=0

## Remote audio enables an audio stream from the sender to the
## receiver for playback. Some audio devices do not have the ability
## to capture all audio output. For these systems, it is recommended
## that remote audio be disabled.
# Rgsender.Audio.IsEnabled=1

## Remote microphone enables an audio stream from the receiver to the
## sender for recording.
# Rgsender.Mic.IsEnabled=1

Re: HP Remote Graphics Software Blanking Monitor Disable

I should also mention that both machines are running Windows 7 64bit SP1 and V6.0.3 of RGS.

 

Kind Regards

Re: HP Remote Graphics Software Blanking Monitor Disable

Hi Andrew,

 

I found a reference in the user guide that states if you want an item from the config file to take effect, then you must remove all leading # signs.

 

Hope this helps!

 

Best,

Daniel

Re: HP Remote Graphics Software Blanking Monitor Disable

You also need to restart the RGS sender service (or just restart the computer) once you make changes to the config file.
