    Question cannot connect to xrdp

    I have an Xubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala VM set up within VMware ESX to test out xrdp.

    xrdp appears to appropriately start up when Xubuntu is booted.

    When I try to RDP to the VM (it has a DHCP address), I get the following messages:

    connecting to sesman ip port 3350
    sesman connect ok
    sending login info to sesman
    login successful for display 10
    started connecting
    connecting to 5910
    error - problem connecting

    What can I do to fix this??

    I really don't want to deploy other VNC servers/clients etc., I would really like people to be able to use Windows RDP...

    I opened 5910 in the Xubuntu VM's firewall for both TCP/UDP via gufw.

    I could also use xdmcp but I cannot find anything on how to enable this in Xubuntu 9.10.

    Thank you, Tom

    got this solved.

    I had to remove xrdp, vnc4server, tightvnc, which were all installed in the wrong order.

    I had to install tightvncserver, then install xrdp.

    Please see:

    It's important to do tightvnc before xrdp.

    Doing things in this manner will cause xrdp to use tightvncserver instead of vnc4server, which will not work.

    I'm not a Linux expert.

    Thank you, Tom
