Fixed issues with sending automated idle aways when a user has multiple concurrent sessions

We released new versions both the IM server and messenger client. These minor updates improved functionality with sending automated idle away messages in situations when a user has several connections to the communication server. The issue could occur when a user moved to another PC and left a running messenger application on his previous workstation. Thus the messenger client could switch to away mode automatically due idle time and could reply on every incoming message even the user was online on the second computer and could have a conversation. Now the IM server tells all instances of the messenger running under same account that the user has multiple concurrent connections and no idle away messages must be sent back automatically to incoming messages.

Minor update of the Android app

A minor update of Bopup Messenger for Android platform is released and it's version 1.0.6 beta is available. This release added support for notification when the communication server interrupts the established connection if another user enters to the IM network from Windows PC or Android device using the same account name. In that case the messenger app disconnects from the IM server and shows an appropriate message event.

Prevent exceeding concurrent connections when a connected user enters to the IM from another place

Sometimes users may forget to log out or close the messenger client when they go to another PC and log to the instant messaging network again from the new location. Of course concurrent users are supported but at the same time this will increase the amount of overall users in the IM system and as result may exceed the number of concurrent users supported by the server license.

New version 4.3.7 of Bopup Communication Server added function to disconnect current connected user when he enters to the IM system from another computer/device. To enable this and log out a previously connected messenger use option called "Automatically close existing session on a new connection" that is on the Authentication tab of the Options dialog box.


It is highly required to update the messaging client too in order correctly recognize occurred disconnect because prior versions of the messengers would try to reconnect to the communication server that would cause issues.
