View Full Version : [ubuntu] XRDP being blocked by Firestarter

December 8th, 2010, 11:01 PM
Hi all,

I recently installed the XRDP server on my desktop edition of Ubuntu v10.04 following the simple instructions available here (http://www.liberiangeek.net/2010/07/connect-ubuntu-10-04-lucid-lynx-remote-desktop-windows-machines/). I did this on two computers. One computer has Firestarter installed while the other does not.

When I use Windows to connect to the Ubuntu box without Firestarter, everything works just fine. However, when I try to connect to the one running Firestarter, I get a pop up showing an error message (see the attached file).

I checked the incoming rules in Firestarter and I don't see a way to add RDP sessions to the list of exceptions. I also tried adding my IP address in the host section but this too didn't help the situation.

Any ideas on what could be causing this problem?
