Is there a way to keep SAP Gui alive even after we loose connection to SAP server

This might be stupid in asking this; Is there a way to keep SAP Gui alive even after we loose connection to SAP?

Why can't we have the same mechanism in SAP Gui for windows as we have for say SAP HANA DB. If DB connection is lost we can connect whenever we are in the contact of DB server without losing anything.

Why don't we have same in SAP Gui?

The actual requirement is, we work in office with Docking station and go to other place in office with laptop on wi-fi and there we lose all connection once wired connection is lost; we have to connect again to SAP once we are on wi-fi network in office.

Hello Mandeep,

As the dispatcher needs an established connection with the SAP GUI (you can see a local connection to the IP host + port 32<instance_number>), the session will be terminated once this connection is lost.

I guess my question is why SAP cant support this; looks like a bug in SAP Gui. Even SAP HANA studio can be connected back to SAP once it is live otherwise you can still work while offline.

Hello Mandeep,

The SAP GUI is just a "presentation layer".

All processing takes place at the SAP server, and all the session information (transaction you executed, screen you are at, content of fields, etc) are stored at the SAP server's memory.

There is no way to do any work with the SAP GUI alone and "post" this work afterwards.

This is not a bug, it is how it is designed to work.

Cheers!

Hello Mandeep,

if you open a SAP GUI connection, you have a socket connection from your PC / notebook to a specific disp+work process on an application server (also called dialog instance).

The socket remains in TIME_WAIT state for e.g. (default on Windows) 2 minutes.

However, if you leave your docking station (LAN) and join, e.g. a WIFI network, you get another IP address and therefore a new socket connection must be established. In theory, with IPv6 networks you can design such "stateless" communications between LANs and WIFI networks, with no interruption of your application at all. The backend (disp+work) will still only use ONE IP address to identify your client.

Best regards,

Kalle

The whole of asking this question is why not we have this in this age where people try to collect things at EOD and sometimes work from home. now they have open all the things again and again.

Hi Mandeep.

I think in SAPGUI it is not possible. You can use the Windows RDP. From the Wifi network  connect any SAPGUI connection.
