Hi Alfred,The screenshot functionality uses your windows 'clipboard' to paste the image from memory into a stored screenshot file. On a networked setup you won't have that clipboard data available on the client.There is a workaround here. Take a screenshot in FS (using FS itself, or perhaps a screenshot utility, or alt-prtscn then paste to graphics program and save in bmp format) so that the screenshot goes to file (bmp format required). Save it somewhere. Now, find your snapshot folders which are located in your FS folder\SnapShots base folder). Copy/move your screenshot into your desired snapshot folder and rename it to "screenshot.bmp". Now ASA will use this screenshot in the display.Best,
