  • Patent number: 11005800
    Abstract: Systems and methods for regulating electronic messages transmissions. A message delay system is disposed between one or more first entities and a second entity within at least one network. Electronic messages are received from among at least one the first entities and the second entity at one or more message arrival times. A message delay component applies a delay to each received electronic message, based on a predefined delay time common to all of the first entities and a first entity delay offset associated with a first entity that is associated with the received message. The first entity delay offset is based on a geographical origin of the first entity relative to a geographical origin of the second entity. Each delayed message is transmitted to a designated recipient via the network, where the designated recipient is among the second entity and the first entities.

  • Patent number: 10992782
    Abstract: A method performs a program start-up with which a remote desktop session is set up between the client and the server. A data exchange program runs on the client, which creates a data exchange connection to a server-side data exchange program. The server-side data exchange program assigns a unique key after the set up of the data exchange connection. The client-side data exchange program determines the user who has set up a remote desktop session with the server, and transmits their username to the server-side data exchange program. The server-side data exchange program stores the usernames together with the key, wherein, if the remote desktop session exists, a program is run on the server, which transmits a program start-up to an interface, to which the username is attributed. The server-side data exchange program transmits the program start-up to the client with which there is a connection to the relevant key.
