Connections List Explained (Cortex Series)

The Cortex offers several different types of Logs & Lists to keep track of such things as the unit’s operations, selected events, connected users and their actions on the units.

One of these types of list is the Connections screen.  This display provides information about all the users that are currently and simultaneously connected to the unit. It is useful to see who is connected and can potentially make changes to the unit’s configuration (if they have control, of course).It can also be used to see if any users have forgotten to log out of the unit. To access the Connections screen, from the top menu, click on Logs > Connections.
