When a user's session is unexpectedly terminated by a network or client failure, the user is disconnected but not logged off.

But since we got a new system administrator who installed some policy to terminate disconnected sessions after some hours, I never again could reconnect to to an unexpectedly terminated session (usually VPN problem)

I found the following link which shows a similat scenario.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

It's probably configured to log-off sessions as soon as they're disconnected (or a very short time later).

Something like Set time limit for disconnected sessions = 0
