I have Windows laptop that can connect to my work thru a Cisco AnyConnect (version 3.1) VPN, then using the Windows 7 built-in Remote Desktop Client. It works OK.
I now also have a Ubuntu distro in which I've installed the following software: * openvpn * openconnect * libopenconnect2 * network-manager-openvpn * network-manager-openvpn-gnome * Remmina VNC
On Ubuntu When I login through the VPN connection after entering my username, my ordinary password and a magic number password supplied through my smartphone my computer says that I'm connected to the remote network. That seems to work OK.
Then I try using Remmina to connect to the computer. All of my permutations of an account fail with "Couldn't convert $DESKTOP_NAME to host address", with the macro being the exact human name (not an IP address) of the desktop.
On the Win7 Remote Desktop client I copied down the information from these fields and used them in a Remmina connection: * Computer * User * Display (full screen, 32-bit) (Remmina only lets me have 24-color) * Local: Use Window key combos in full screen * Devices: printers, clipboard * Remote Audio: Play it * Detect connection quality automatically, persist bitmap code, reconnect if dropped.
I have Remmina locations for most/all of this.
Other threads involving Remmina mention using a RDP panel as well, perhaps at security. Even though I installed a remmina-rdp plugin I don't see anything of it in the Remmina UI.
I tried enabling SSH tunneling. In it I tried the same user name as the "User:" I used elsewhere. No better results.
What is wrong here?
