15.1.  Introduction

Shadowing is a feature that lets a user connect to, view, and interact with ThinLinc sessions of other users. This can be useful in remote assistance and support scenarios, where trusted support personnel can connect to a user session and aid with for example application problems.

Because shadowing gives the shadowing user full control over the shadowed session, this feature should be used with caution.

The shadowing feature is enabled by default and is configured to ask the user to accept or reject a shadowing request.
