Closing the Administration Interface

The administration interface will automatically close your connection after 15 minutes of inactivity, but the EFT service continues to run in the background. A warning message and countdown timer appear 5 minutes before the connection times out.

When you manually close the administration interface, you can configure an Exit administrator confirmation prompt. You can turn this prompt off for future exits from within the prompt or in the Server Global Settings dialog box.

To close the administration interface

  1. Do one of the following:

    • In the upper right corner of the administration interface, click the X.

    • On the main menu, click File >Exit administrator.

    The Exit administrator dialog box appears.

  2. If you do not want the Exit administrator dialog box to appear when you close the interface, select the Don't show this prompt again check box; otherwise, leave it selected.

  3. Click OK. The administration interface closes.

  4. To turn the prompt back on, refer to the procedure below.

Configuring Exit Prompts

In the Server Global Settings dialog box, you can specify whether you are prompted when you close the administration interface.

To configure login or exit prompts

  1. On the main menu, click Edit >Global Settings. The Server Global Settings dialog box appears.

  2. The Prompt on administrator exit check box is cleared by default. If you want a message to appear when you close the interface explaining that the EFT service does not stop after the administration interface is closed, select the Prompt on administrator exit check box.

  3. Click OK.
