Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Sessions - MS RDP Client 5.2

Aug 12, 2010

I have a mate who runs the IT in his office. He has recently set up and secured the network but now has an issue logging in to the network from home. Here is the message I got from him regarding the set up and what he is having specific issues with.

I was really pleased with the results on my Pen Test; the office itself is a pure MS environment but the testers all use Ubuntu 9.10 to hack with. The main tools of choice are Nessus and Ophcrack with a bit of NMap. It's pretty scary what you can do with just these tools. I had a Wireshark trace running all the time and it's fascinating to watch how these guys crack open a system. The only really major change I've had to implement on my network is to force the use of SSL as a transport layer for our remote desktop sessions. This has forced me to start using MS RDP Client 5.2 because it can use certificates on the session. The problem I've got now is that the Terminal Client in Ubuntu can't do this so I can't remote in from home on my Ubuntu laptop.

Software :: Multiple Concurrent Remote Desktop Sessions?

Feb 28, 2010

I currently have a RHEL 5.4 software development server. A lot of my developers are using windows desktops and they need to run interactive sessions on the server. I need to support between 4-6 concurrent users on the server. I tried doing this with VNC but I was never able to set that up for more than one user at a time.

Debian Configuration :: Run Remote Desktop Sessions - FreeNX Connection Timeout

Apr 19, 2010

I have a Debian VPS running Lenny and I'm trying to setup a way to run remote desktop sessions from it. I went with FreeNX, NX client for windows from nomachine, XDM and xfce4. All seems to have installed well, but I can't start an NX session on my box. I can connect to the server and authenticate, but the client hangs on "Downloading the session information," eventually timing out. The log output is below - I'm not even seeing an error message. Any ideas?


The only thing I noticed during install, which was about 400 packages since this was a barebones VPS, was that I should consider recompiling the kernel with CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND=y. I don't know if this has any impact on session information, however, since this is a new session, not one I'm trying to resume.

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Access Work Remote Desktop Via The Terminal Server Client On Wired Box Running 10.10?

Dec 3, 2010

I am at a loss. I can not access my work remote desktop via the terminal server client on my wired box running Ubuntu 10.10. My wireless laptop is able to connect right away once I established the VPN connection. The VPN connection is established on both boxes with no problems.

When I tried the Terminal Server Client on my wired boxed, it says it can not establish a connection. Yet my wireless box gets connected immediately!

I check the /etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and the /etc/resolv.conf to see if there were any differences, but they are essentially the same. When I have the vpnc connection, they both recognize it and I am able to ping the IP address shown when I do a "ifconfig" on the terminal.

What can be the problem? Anything I need to configure on a wired computer versus a wireless one? What else can I check?

Software :: Remote Desktop Protocol Version 7 Client?

Feb 23, 2011

Is there a RDP client that supports version 7? I've been using rdesktop, but as far as I can tell it only supports version 6. The main reason is that version 6 doesn't support the Windows 7 Aero theme.

Ubuntu :: Viewing Desktop Using Remote Client (Windows TightVNC) Doesn't Work

Apr 30, 2010

When either of the proprietary Nvidia drivers are enabled, viewing the desktop using a remote client (Windows TightVNC) does not work. The initial remote screen display is ok, but no updates to the remote display occur. Reverting back to the non-proprietary driver solves the problem. I have also tried using a 10.04 Live CD and used Remote Desktop Viewer on the client machine, and it behaves the same way.

Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop Disconnected Because Of Protocol Error Detected At The Client - Code 0x1104

Sep 16, 2009

I love Ubuntu but there is just one thing that I cannot get working. I have vista on this computer (Which I am going to delete after I get this working) when this computer is booted into vista then I type "" (which is this computers internal ip address) and it connects to it without a problem. When I try this on ubuntu with KRFB running I type "" as it tells me to do with the added port number. This computer (This is the one I am Connecting to says "The remote user has been authenticated and is now connected." and when I hover over the icon it says "Desktop sharing - Connected with" which is my laptops IP address. On my laptop however it says "Remote Desktop Disconnected Because of a protocol error detected at the client (code 0x1104), this session will be disconnected. Please try connecting to the remote computer again." No matter how many times I try it doesn't work.

Usually we require vnc to take remote sessions. There was one another i think it was called xdrp or xrdp. I am asking this out of curiosity, is there any way to take remote sessions using http. Like in web conferencing, we invite users to join the conference and then we are able to share desktop. Is there any way to do this on one-to-one basis ? is such a technology exists for linux (for any disto) ?

Ubuntu Networking :: Cannot Remote Vista Desktop Using RDP

Jan 26, 2010

i am a new user to Ubuntu and Linux for that matter. I am using ubuntu 9.10. I want to remote from my Ubuntu machine into my Vista desktop (Vista Ultimate).i can do so with ease using the various Ubuntu application through vnc. However, whenever I try to do so through RDP I am unable to do so. When I try to remote into the Vista machine through RDP it will launch the Vista login screen where I enter my user name and password. It always comes back saying that the password is incorrect even though the login is the same that is used to login everyday. It doesn't seem to be a firewall problem because I disabled it and get the same results. I also get the same results when using either a wired connection or a wireless connection on the Ubuntu machine.My normal network consists of the Ubunu notebook, my Vista Ultimate Desktop (wired to the router) and my Vista Ultimate Tablet PC on a wireless connection.

I might mention that I can remote using RDP from my Ubuntu notebook into into the Vista Tablet PC with no problem. But not the so with the Desktop. Always fails telling me that I am using an incorrect password. I am the only user on either Vista machine and as far as I can tell everything is set the same on both Vista systems (securrity, remote, etc.) unless I am missing something, which I apparently am.Not sure if it makes any difference but the Tablet pc has always run Vista but the Desktop was orriginally an XP and for the life of me I can't remember if I did an upgrade to Vista Ultimate or a clean install since it has been a year or so.

Ubuntu Networking :: Use Of The TSC For Remote Desktop Connections?

Jun 17, 2010

Alrighty, I have a couple of questions regarding use of the TSC for remote desktop connections. I'm connecting from my Ubuntu Desktop (Lucid) and i'm connecting to my Laptop (Windows 7) i'm running PC Tools Firewall Plus on the windows machine. The window's machine has remote assistance allowed. At the moment i'm just trying to get the TSC to work on my home network. I filled it out as follows:

Computer: Lappy's IP
Protocol: RDPv5
Username: ZachAdmin
Password: *My password*
Domain: Blank
Client Hostname: Blank

Now the first time I tried to connect, about 20ish seconds passed and "The connection has timed out" appears. So I went into my Firewall and sure enough it was blocking the UDP/TCP packets that my desktop was sending. So I temporarily allowed all UDP/TCP packets. Now when I connect "Connection Refused" immediately pops up. I go into my firewall and it's allowed both inbound and outbound packets from my laptop to my desktop and vis versa. So now i'm really stumped.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Without A Monitor (10.04)?

Jun 20, 2010

I have been trying and trying to get remote desktop to work without using a monitor connected to the server. I have the server set up to where it can be rebooted and everything perfectly fine remotely (as long as it has a monitor). Unfortunately, I need this to be not connected to a monitor-PERIOD. I would think this would be something to be working out of the box, but I guess not.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 Remote Desktop Only Allows Local?

Jul 13, 2010

I have Ubuntu 10.04 (fresh install) and it is my work computer/Server and i'd like access to this PC from my home. But with Remote Desktop it only says i can do local.

I've look around and opened up port 5900 in my router. Set this IP to to static and forwarded the port to this computer.

I've read that unchecking the "configure network automatically to accept connections" as it seems to cause an issue in ports i've read. Still nothing.

Here is a screen cap of my settings

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Setup On 10.04?

Oct 20, 2010

install ubuntu 10.04 desktop, configure remote desktop so I can connect from my Mac or Windows machine without being physically be at the ubuntu machine, and I won't have a dedicated monitor for the ubuntu box either. And I want to have root access to everything via remote desktop or VNC.What I have tried: system->preferences->remote desktop to enable remote desktop, I can connect and see the desktop, the mouse clicks would only show on the directly connected monitor, not in my VNC session.Then I tried to install TightVNC server, start a at display :1, I can also connect, but every time any action requires a root access, such as installing a package using Ubuntu Software Center, the root password prompt would only show up on the directly connected monitor.

I also install xrdp package, and followed instructions here: [URL]It actually worked using Remote Desktop application from my Mac or Windows box for a little while until I restarted the machine, thinking I can unplug the monitor and connect via remote desktop from then on. Then it stopped working.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Not Working?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a Laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 and a Netbook with Remix 10.04. I'm trying to connect by Remote Desktop from the Laptop to the Netbook. Remote Desktop wasn't installed by default in Remix so I installed it via software centre. I then configured Remote desktop in both machines. When I do Connect on the laptop all I get is a black screen and then it closes with the message "Connection to host was Closed". This happens when I try either VNC or SSH. The other thing that's odd, although both machines are on the same WLAN and I checked "configure networkautomatically to accept connections" on both machines, the Laptop doesn't find the other machine in Remote Desktop. What am I/have I done wrong or have I ommitted something?

Ubuntu Networking :: VNC To Remote Desktop After Reboot?

Apr 22, 2011

I have an Ubuntu Desktop machine that I have to frequently access remotely - sometimes after it has rebooted. I'm not concerned about physical security for the machine but I am concerned about remote security.

Since normal VNC isn't activated until after the login, what is the best way to go about remotely accessing this machine's desktop without having hands on it?

I've tried setting auto-login but then I run into the keyring not unlocked problem. Disabling the keyring or setting a blank password seems like a bad idea.
