Rescue Assist w/ AWS Workspaces

We recently began the migration to AWS workpsaces for our DAAS. Our technicians use LMI Rescue Assist Tech Console regularly to support our customers. Inside the workspaces we are getting this when trying to connect:


[2024-06-12 7:31:43 PM] Host site:
[2024-06-12 7:31:43 PM] === Console started (7.50.3580 64-bit) ===
[2024-06-12 7:31:45 PM] Start Console communication error. Error code (7), Last error (0).
[2024-06-12 7:31:59 PM] Logging out


This is for all users and we get a similar error when attempting to use the web tech console.


Any ideas?

Additional logging appears to throw a SOAP error.

Hi @sbenson, welcome to the community.


I have been researching this, but there is some confusion about which of our services you are using. When I looked up your account I saw that you have GoToAssist licenses, but in your post you are referencing LMI Rescue? 


Initially, what we now call GoToAssist Remote Support v5, we called RescueAssist (but the name did not end up sticking).

Re: Rescue Assist w/ AWS Workspaces

Thanks for the response Glenn. I am using rescue assist in this scenario.  A customer we support uses rescue assist and we have a seat under their account separate from the RDSPOS account.
