Terminate smart tunnel

I enabled smart tunnels for RDP usage, I also turned on auto start for the smart tunnel. My problem is if my users don't click on the logout button on the web page when they are finished , (they just "x" out of the browser), the tunnel stays up. Is there a way to automatically close the smart tunnel when they close the browser or to put a timeout on the smart tunnel?

Thanks in advance for your help.


Re: Terminate smart tunnel

When smart tunnel starts, the security appliance tunnels all traffic from the browser process the user used to initiate the clientless session. If the user starts another instance of the browser process, it passes all traffic to the tunnel. If the browser process is the same and the security appliance does not provide access to a given URL, the user cannot open it. As a workaround, the user can use a different browser from the one used to establish the clientless session.
