When alarm popups between the DS ControlPoint client software the DigitalSENTRY Video Server Service are opened and viewed, a TCP session is established. When the alarm/event is no longer being viewed the TCP connection is failing to close the session, this causes an eventual maximum session limit to be reached.


Install DS ControlPoint version 7.4.320.7640 or above.

If DS ControlPoint is v7.4.320 or later see article - Event Viewer receives logon errors multiple times a second on a DigitalSentry server.
