Resolution

If you want to not have the DX8000/8100 do an auto log out after a certain time, set the User Time out for Manual

  • Log into the DX8000/8100 as Admin
  • Go to setup menu ( looks like a wrench and screwdriver)
  • Click on User
  • Move down to User Timeout set for Manual (Allows you to configure the amount of time a user is allowed to remain logged on to the DX8100 system, before the system automatically logs out. The time period is from 5-60 minutes (in increments of 5 minutes). The manual setting allows the user to stay logged on to the DX8100 until the user is manually logged off)
