I just installed xrdp on ubuntu 15.04 using these instructions: http://c-nergy.be/blog/?p=7984
When i try to rdp from my windows machine, it shows a grey window entitled "connection log" and it says "connecting to sesman ip x.x.x.x port 3350" but nothing else. (x.x.x.x = my ubuntu machine's ip addy)
It has an ok button... when i click on it, it just takes me back to the xrdp login dialog box.
Not sure what I'm doing wrong.
What I've tried In the login dialogue box, i have a few different options for "Module". The description above is what happens when I try the "sesman-Xvnc" option or the "sesman-any" option. When I try console, I get a different message:
started connecting connecting to x.x.x.x 5900 tcp connected security level is 0 (1=none, 2=standard) error - problem connecting.
Ideally, i want to connect so i have a desktop. I just tried command line to help debug the problem.
I'm not very good with linux but right now I"m just checking to see if the problem could be an unopened port. Just googling how to do that. But if you have any other tips I'd appreciate it.
One artifact i just noticed that when i choose sesman-Xvnc (which is the default module) the connection log shows 127.0.0.1 instead of the IP Address of my ubuntu machine. Not sure if that means I missed some configuration somewhere. This is different from the behavior I see when I choose command line. Command line shows the right IP ...
I selected the rdp-any module and it got further. I specify the right username / password and then i see this:
connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1 port 3350 sesman connect ok sending login info to the session manager please wait... xrdp_mm_process_login_response: login successful for display started connecting connecting to 127.0.0.1 5910 error - problem connecting
On the ubuntu machine, i did "tail -f /var/log/syslog" and it writes out this record when the windows machine attempts to connect:
