Sometimes, a user is logged out of Citrix Gateway within a few seconds when the client idle timeout is set.
The Windows plug-in might crash during authentication.
In Always On service mode, the VPN plug-in for Windows fails to establish the user tunnel automatically after the users log on to their Windows machines.
