Purpose of 'log out' button

Post by psychopomp1 » Sun Jul 24, 2011 10:43 pm

Hi
Had my 7800N for a while now and very happy with it :) My question is when you click on the 'log out' button in the sofware and then immediately try to log in, it doesn't ask you for your username/password. Why is this?

This could be caused by your web browser storing the username and password.

This can be done equally as easy just by clicking on it in Favourites which is something I often do as a short cut, but I agree, not much point in having a logout option if it doesn't actually log you out and the Back button, if you've been elsewhere, is a better alternative as you aren't left with a blank page if you choose not to close the window.

Perhaps this is something the techs should look at if they are aware of this.

I think the logout is for, other computers on the network, if they want to login.

So say 192.168.1.100 has logged in and not clicked on the logout button, if 192.168.1.101 trys to login it will get a error code saying 192.168.1.100 has already logged in.

Maybe this is the reason for having the logout button.
