Novell SecureLogin
NSL v 6
Installed in LDAP/ GINA mode


NSL goes to offline mode after a workstation only login with the LDAP GINA. 


This is working as designed, and is the default behavior.  This behavior can be changed by upgrading to NSL6.00.005 or higher AND modifying the registry.  Create a string value called"DoNotShutdownNSL" under  HKLM\Software\Novell\Login\Ldap.  This key can hold any value.    This will ensures that NSL is not switched to offline after a workstation only login.  Also, with this registry configuration, SecureLogin does not terminate when the workstation is unlocked with the workstation only option.
