 The RTW RMDS (RFA) engine introduces the concept of sessions. Sessions are a way to specify the various types of RMDS connections you may have. Where appropriate,​ the RMDS (RFA) dialogs will contain a Session field. If the session field is left empty (default), then the default session will be used as specified in the RTW configuration file called rtconfig. ​ If no default session is specified in the rtconfig file, then '​RTWSession'​ is considered the default session. See [[rmds_rfa_engine_configuration|Configuration]] for more information about editing the RMDS (RFA) configuration options. The RTW RMDS (RFA) engine introduces the concept of sessions.
