Loss of network connectivity is indicated using an overlay with the message “Network connection lost” over the most recent screen data. This overlay appears when the client network cable is disconnected or when no PCoIP protocol traffic is received by the client for more than 2 seconds.
Figure 1. Network Connection Lost Overlay
The lost network connection message appears until the network is restored or the timeout expires (and the PCoIP session ends).
It is not recommended to use this notification message when using PCoIP devices with virtual desktops. Normal scheduling within the virtual desktop hypervisor can falsely trigger this message. For more information, see the Enable Peer Loss Overlay setting described in VMware View Connection Configuration.
