Re: NVDA remote access.

The way I understand it is that when your work computer drops into the secure screen it drops your user NVDA settings and loads the secure screen NVDA settings. So if you have the remote add-on with auto-connect set for your user NVDA settings and copy this set-up to the secure screen settings, your work computer will drop it’s remote connection when the secure screen appears but immediately re-establish it when the secure screen NVDA settings are loaded. Similarly, when you log into your work computer, the remote connection will drop again and reconnect when your user NVDA settings are loaded. Your local computer shows as being connected but this only indicates that it is connected to the host server, not your work computer.

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA remote access.
I believe, I did, however will verify tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion! The local NVDA works fine on the locked screen, only remote NVDA has problems.
All the best!
On your work computer, did you copy your NVDA user profile after installing the remote access add-on using the ‘Use currently saved settings on log-on and other secure screens’ button on the preferences/general page of the NVDA menu?
My question is regarding the NVDA remote access.Last week I install the NVDA remote on my work computer to be able to access from home and it works fine with one exception.
My work computer goes to the lock screen after some enactivity time and to continue I need to press ctrl+alt+del and enter my username and password.
So, the remote access works very well while the work computer is unlocked, as soon as lock screen is kicks in, the remote speech stops, my local NVDA still shows as “connected”, however even choosing “press ctrl+alt+delete” from NVDA remote access menu does not do anything, I am not able to unlock my work PC remotely.
Looks like, it is some kind of limitation of NVDA remote access. I wonder, if development is still going on? After more then a year, I still see the version is 1.2. And my second question, may be someone knows the work around, how I can dismiss this lock screen remotely?
Forgot to mention, I am running windows 7 both, remotely and locally, if it makes any difference. I was also looking for some third_party solution, however did not find anything.
Will greatly appreciate, if someone could please help!
