Reconnecting to workbench
I am using Workbench to control an AKD servo driver. I will occasionally lose the connection between the AKD and the computer running Workbench (I believe this is a network fault, and not a AKD/Workbench issue). The servo driver will continue running its programmed motion tasks, although Workbench has no connection. My issue is that when this happens, I cannot simply reconnect to the AKD driver. I have to power cycle the driver, connect, and home the motor before I can restart any motion tasks. Is there a way to connect to the driver without a power cycle? I am OK with stopping the motion tasks, but I would like to maintain the driver's home calibration, which is lost duing the power cycle.
Thanks in advance!

A "virtual" computer is being utilized. Direct connection of 1.17 Workbench (WB) is to be conducted, and then testing the ability of WB to reconnect directly connected. If this proves successful, then the facilities IT staff is to research potential issues within the virtual computer or networking.
