Ending a remote session with a 6500 using the Maestro

I am operating my Flex 6500 remotely using the Maestro, which is connected to my LAN by an Ethernet cable. So far, the only way I have figured out to end a session is to go to the Network menu and click on WiFi. Is there a better way to do this? It seems to me there should be and 'end session' button or something like that.

I have the same problem. And when you just shut down the maestro and turn it back on it shows still connected and you can’t connect back up. I tried to disconnect user but don’t work. I know on my iPhone there is a disconnect option and frees up the radio for another connection.

Can you reconnect with your PC to discontinue the Maestro session?

If a session is in progress, use the Switch Radio button on the Radio tab of the Main Menu to end the session and return to the Select Radio screen, tap the logged in SmartLink user icon in the lower right corner of the screen, then tap Logout in the Account Settings screen.

See page 43 of Maestro User Guide. It is usual to leave it connected in order to avoid having to log in, next time you start a session.

Yes I can boot it with the PC. And logging out of smart link is more of a pain. Are you saying don’t log in while your local? I will look at the Manuel when I get home. Thank You

Any time you logon via SmartLink via a different Client Device be it a PC, Maestro, iPhone, Mac or IPad, SmartLink will give you the option to disconnect whatever device is currently connected to the Radio.

There is NO need to logoff from SmartLink as the remote or local device can take control of the radio via SmartLink and logoff the current client.

I typically run my Maestro using Smartlink, with my pc remoting in via VPN. I do this so I can run Hamradio Deluxe, Dat and Cat for digital modes as well as N1MN for contesting. When I exit Smartlink I do nothing more than a quit press on the power button.
