Ubuntu :: Can See Remote Desktop But Can't Control It

Dec 1, 2010

I recently installed 10.10 64-bit on my laptop. I have an older laptop with 9.10 32-bit on it. I installed vnc4viewer on the 9.10 laptop and started and set up remote desktop connections to let the remote user view and control the local desktop. I then tried Remote Desktop Viewer for the Applications menu on the 10.10 laptop and I can log in and see the remote desktop. When I try to do anything through the vnc viewer I can see my changes affect the serving machine but not the viewing machine. For instance, if I grab a window on the viewing machine and try to move it around the desktop, I can see it move on the serving machine. I guess the connection could just be very slow but it seems real time on the serving machine.

Software :: Cross-platform Remote Control - Remote Desktop Software

Jan 20, 2010

I've been using Linux on a more regular basis for the last two months now and have been able to find replacements for most of the software i use in Windows, or by using Wine. But i have one big problem that is keeping me from switching permanently to Linux. I frequently use remote control software to access and control my computers, both at home and to access my computers from remote places over the internet. I've been using NetOp, and more recently RealVNC. The client, or "viewer" part of RealVNC is working fine in both Windows and Linux. It's the host or server part that i can't get to work properly when it comes to VNC. The vnc.so module doesn't work on my system, x0vncserver program seems rather useless since it refuses to load before i have a network connection and this prevents me from start the program automatically as the wireless connection isn't ready and the vncserver command isn't an option since it doesn't display what i see on the actual screen. So, does anyone have a nice solution to this problem? Either to make VNC work or suggest some software that does. Anyway, it has to work on both Windows and Linux, in Linux it has to display the native x display, there must be built-in encryption and preferably be free or open-source software. I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.

also i am not shure if my router and firewall configuration is correct, i disabled wan blocking but didn't enable remote config management on my rooter, is that correct?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Option For Canon Remote Capture - Remote Camera Control Software ?

Oct 17, 2010

Canon cameras used to come with a piece of software called remote capture for Windows and MacOS.

You plug in the camera via USB, and then the camera display is on your monitor. From there you can do everything your camera does, like taking pictures of video. Does anyone know if there is linux equivalent software that can do this?

I have found this software, but new cameras aren't supported.

I'm trying to make a stop motion movie.

Looked trough tons of apps, Googled for hours, found nothing.

Ubuntu Networking :: Software To Access Desktop And / Or Control Remotely

Dec 1, 2010

I have won my fight and my father in law accepted to give gnu/linux a try as his server and to run on the computer of the new company he is starting. One feature he would like is to be able to access his work desktop (graphicaly) from home. On my side, I would like to be able to control his desktop from home if I need to show him things. I already can SSH in terminal to install and maintain stuff but, to move the mouse around and point him where to click or what to use would be invaluable.

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.

Ubuntu Networking :: Secure Remote Desktop With SSH FreeNX & DD-WRT?

Feb 1, 2010

For a Secure Remote Desktop on Ubuntu 9.10 here is how I did it using OpenSSH, FreeNX and a router with DD-WRT v24. Pic of it in use at bottom of post, transferring a file and remote desktop at the same time.

For the purposes of this guide I will use a Desktop as the Server (Host) which is at home. The Client will be a Laptop that I can use to control the Desktop remotely. First you should already be familiar with the Terminal which is where you enter commands (anything in a "Code:" box).

In Ubuntu it is in Applications > Accessories > Terminal In Kubuntu it is usually on the lower left taskbar and is called Konsole I am using Ubuntu so you may have to make some adjustments to this guide if you are not using Ubuntu. Installing OpenSSH (for the rest of this guide I will refer to it as only SSH)

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Access Refused

Feb 17, 2010

I have 4 boxes on a local network: 2 with XP only, 1 with Ubuntu 9.10 only, and 1 with both. All boxes can share folders, set up with share-admin instead of using Nautilus right-click properties for each folder. I can see and control the remote desktops on all boxes, to all other boxes, from all other boxes,with one exception: I can only access the XP desktop on the dual boot box, not the Ubuntu desktop. When I try I get: "Connection to host was closed." I am refused access to the Ubuntu desktop in this manner from both the other Ubuntu machine, and from both XP machines.

My setups are basically plain vanilla with routine installs of Ubuntu 9.10. On the XP machines I am using TightVNC on the XP machines to view both other XP desktops, and the Ubuntu desktop that is accessible. On both Ubuntu setups I am using (I suppose) vino and vinagre, and have completely re-installed what I think is the relevant software. There is no firewall running on the Ubuntu dual boot, when I check ufw. For reasons I cannot determine the inaccessible Ubuntu desktop is not providing its own address but instead in the Remote Desktop config dialogue it identifies itself as which I think is the loopback id. I know so little about this sort of networking that I am not giving all relevant info, but I still thought I'd try.

Ubuntu Networking :: Remote Desktop Connection Closing After A While?

Jul 7, 2010

Does anyone know what could be causing a Remote Desktop connection to a 10.04 box to be closing after some period of time? I have three systems all running 10.04 with Remote Desktop enabled. I'm using UltraVNC on Windows 7 to connect to them. If I open a connection and leave it open for a long time (like overnight, for example), when I come back in the morning, I still see the VNC window but as soon as I click on it, it closes. I can immediately open a new connection to the box but it now shows two active connections. At first I was thinking maybe there's an idle timeout value but given that Ubuntu still seems to think that the original connection is active, maybe the problem isn't on the Ubuntu side but on the UltraVNC side?

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.
