Re: xrdp/freerds on FreeBSD

Hi Chris,

FreeRDS is Marc's fork of xrdp.  We don't support it.  I can't even
understand why he is doing this.

If you want "no VNC" RDP on BSD, use X11rdp and xrdp.  It should be
pretty easy to get compiling.

Get the latest git from github.com/FreeRDP/xrdp
or even the latest devel fork here
git clone git://github.com/neutrinolabs/xrdp

It should be the must efficient remote desktop solution out there.

Let me know if you have problems.

Jay

Re: xrdp/freerds on FreeBSD

Hi Jay,

Thanks for the response.

I realized after my first email that there was a separate ML for freerds and made a post there as well.

Koichiro responded to that email, suggesting that I try his guide and port at http://w.vmeta.jp/tdiary/?date=20131015 for xrdp with x11rdp.  I tried this and I'm right back to the issue I was having before.

I don't see any errors in the logs, xrdp.log has:
[20131113-16:59:13] [WARN ] [init:47] libscp initialized
[20131113-16:59:13] [CORE ] starting sesman with pid 32182
[20131113-16:59:13] [INFO ] listening...
and when I try to connect with RDC from my win 7 machine it's just a black background and mouse cursor.
It does appear that xrdp-sesman started a new xrdp process, but no X server.

This is with xrdp-devel from ports, which I believe is 0.7.0 version.  I'm continuing to try to analyze the failure, but I'm running out of things to check.

Re: xrdp/freerds on FreeBSD

Btw, when I try this with the xrdp (0.6.0) from ports the only difference is that xrdp-sesman does not start another xrdp process.
