> --------------------------------------
>                 Key: GUACAMOLE-360
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GUACAMOLE-360
>             Project: Guacamole
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: guacamole-client
>            Reporter: Matt Prager
>            Priority: Minor
> I've had an issue with Guacamole where I forget to logoff a VNC session, go 
> use a completely different computer or device, try to login to the same 
> session and get caught in an "autoreconnect loop" where the new session logs 
> off off the old session which then autoreconnects that old session and logs 
> off the new session ad inifinitum. There's no way to stop this because, if 
> I'm not in front of the computer I forgot to log off, I have no way of 
> shutting down that session remotely.
> Since many of us leave tabs open rather than remembering to close them, it 
> seems that the behavior should be, in the event of a user trying to 
> simultaneously log into the same session, that autoreconnect should only 
> apply to the most recent session and the older session should be disconnected 
> and remain that way.
> Otherwise, you run into a situation where you were using Guacamole at the 
> office to log into a VNC session and are then unable to use Guacamole to log 
> into that session from anywhere else which sort of defeats the purpose of 
> remote access.
