Ubuntu Servers :: Remote Desktop Connection - Cannot Seem To Connect To Any Windows Server Via IP Address
May 5, 2011
I have a problem with my Terminal Server Client, I cannot seem to connect to any windows server via IP address. Can anyone please recommend any tool I could use to connect? I need to work on the server for admin interfaces example Admin Kits for workspace protection
i have installed ubuntu 9.04 and desktop xubuntu. i want access the sever from my windows xp using either rdp or vnc. i am able to use the ssh but thats only command line. i need the gui desktop. i have installed x11vnc,tightvnc etc. but whenever i try to connect from my vnc manager,its giveout error.machine actively refused it. i havent configured any port or anything like that.
I can't connet to windows remote desktop using NLA. I have try'd Terminal Server Client and KRDC but it seems they don't support remote desktop with NLA, but if i wanna connect to remote desktop without NLA its ok.
How do i set up a remote desktop connection from my Windows 7 machine to a SFTP server im trying to set up running on Fedora 10.Ive installed vnc server on fedora, and tried tightvnc and real vncviewer on windows and i cant get it to connect. Im not sure how the firewall works in fedora, but ive added the port to the "other ports" section of the firewall. On the windows firewall ive also added the vnc programs to the exception list.
is there any apps compatible with remote desktop? So my xubuntu system can connect to my windows system using the existing set up for remote desktop... or do I need to install a new client/server or thing on both systems? I do not mind doing that if you can recommend a good client/server but would prefer to just connect to the existing remote desktop if possible
I want to setup my linux PC so that I can use windows PC remote desktop to connect to my linux PC. I found a solution from the web that I use xrdp and sesman to connect to the linux PC. Also, the file startwm.sh has to be changed:
However, I found that it actually shared the desktop between the linux PC and my windows PC. Hence the speed is a bit slow. Are there any other approaches that work similar to windows remote desktop that can kick the current user who logged in (log him out) and only you access the desktop? I believe if it is possible to do that, the speed will be much improved. I am totally new to remote desktop setup and do not know each software how it works. I just followed the procedure step-by-step to set the xrdp and sesman up. Please give me some advice on the above situation.
I've got an old p3 with 11 ide hard drives strapped to it for storage and I decided to throw Ubuntu server on it because it's more lightweight than a standard ubuntu install, and given it's a pentium 3 with 128mb of ram, lightweight is good. I installed, through putty (ssh), the gnome gui - then learned that putty only does cli (i was thrilled), so I've spend the last hour trying to figure out how to enable remote desktop.
I don't mind reinstalling to do what is necessary. remote desktop to manage file downloads from my windows 7 machine(s) big list, i know. history: this thing is/was my media server. I had xp on it, sharing all drives and watching hd movies off it, but then xp decided it did't want to boot anymore so here we are. I'm thinking of just putting ubuntu 8.04/8.10 on it and through its wonderful gui enabling remote desktop and using realvnc/tightvnc to access it
I was trying to install PEAR on a remote Ubuntu server using putty. I ran an apt-get install php-pear command and everything went smoothly, but now i cannot access the website as it says 'can't establish a connection to the server' and in firebug, it shows the status 'aborted'. I even tried adding the pear path in php.ini file and restarting the apache server but no luck.
I have an ubuntu fileserver and an ubuntu laptop both running 10.10.For some reason I can't connect to the server (file or remote terminal) from the laptop, even though I can access ssh through terminal on my mac and have been able to mount the filesystem on another computer running the ubuntu liveCD. I just get the error 'no route to host'.I've tried turning off the firewall on the laptop and re-installing ssh on both computers, but I don't have a clue what to do next!
I am able to telnet to the server via a remote connection, but for some reason, it will not accept mail. ere is the bounce back email I am getting.Quote:This is the mail system at host smtp.mydomain.net.I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could notbe delivered to one or more recipients.

I am playing around with the idea of being able to use a cloud or instance based service to install Ubuntu 9.10 Server. This will enable me to have remote access via SSH command line.So far, I've installed Ubuntu 9.10 Server + Ubuntu Desktop to a virtual machine. I can access this via SSH and locally via the desktop. However, in the real environment the only access I am going to have initially is via SSH.
I would like to be able to connect using Windows Remote Desktop or VNC (whichever is easier and most importantly - most secure) to the machine.. even though the desktop is on there, I need to somehow configure the remote access all from the command line.I've had a read of various forums and have been trawling support forums for days but can't find a working solution for 9.10 Server or that fits my situation above where I will not have any physical access to the desktop or machine to configure remote desktop. It all has to be done via SSH/command line.
I want to remote-desktop into a windows box that happens be hooked up to a linux server.The linux server uses a static IP. I've already enabled remote-desktop on the windows machine, but am wondering what I need to do server-side to make the server's ip forward to the windows machine. I know this can be done with iptables but I'm not sure how to work it.

When i try to connect to my server via port 443 i get a connection refused error. However when i try to connect via port 22 it connects. Since that didn't work, i tried restarting the entire server.To restate, i changed the config file and restarted ssh then the computer, however the port didn't change.Ohh and yes my router is set to port forwarding on port 443, though it doesn't matter since I'm inside the network.
I want to transfer files from my laptop to my desktop remotely over the net. Both these computers access net via different service providers and have dynamically assigned IP addresses. If I know the IP address, I can use ssh to accomplish my task. However if I don't have physical access to the desktop, I cannot know the IP address. Is there a way by which a the desktop sends its public IP address to me so that I can establish ssh connection ?
I'm trying to connect to my home pc with ssh. I have road runner connected to a wireless router and then my pc connects to the router via a wireless card. I can use the Internet from my pc. I also know sshd is running. I do a ifconfig to get the ip address. Then, nothing happens when I try to connect to this ip address via ssh from a remote pc. So, what's going on with this? How can I get ssh to connect to the home pc?
I currently run Win 7 and want to upgrade my computer to a server to accomplish the following... I have a VPN Service. I want the server machine to connect to a VPN providing a secure connection. Then, I want all the machines in the house (windows based) to connect through the server onto the VPN connection. Hopefully this makes sense. Would it be better to stick to Windows Server 2008 or switch to Ubuntu?

I have FileZilla installed on this machine, and OpenSSH (with an open port 22) on another machine on my home network. When I try and connect, I get: Quote: Status:Connecting to 192.168.2.3... Response:fzSftp started Command: open "firstname.lastname@example.org" 22 Error:Connection refused Error:Could not connect to server
Which has left me puzzled as I have an open port. Does the username have to be defined somewhere? E.g. the machine acting as my SFTP server can be logged on to locally as alphatwo so that's what I logged in as (with the correct password). Is this correct? If so, does anyone have any ideas as to how I might rectify it? I want SFTP set up so I can copy PHP files from my laptop to /var/www/html/ on another PC (across the home network).

I am using debian testing on my office pc, but i need to access it's desktop from time to time. So i need No machine/teamviewer software that can provide me with possibility to interact my desktop.
