I'm having trouble with the remote desktop server that comes with Ubuntu.
I've changed to settings to "allow other users to view" and "allow other users to control" and I set "require users to enter this password: **". And I've turned off the confirmation for each access.
When I try to connect from another machine (namely a Windows machine) I get "This computer can't connect to the remote computer".
I've set this up before on a different Ubuntu box with the same settings without trouble.
The remote desktop computer has other ports open, like SSH and FTP that work fine. And I did not have to configure the firewall for those applications. Is there something else I might be missing? Something I should try and determine the issue?
