[SOLVED] XP, Ubuntu 9.10, SME Server 7.4, Rdesktop or Putty
I have SME 7.4 set up as a private server and gateway. From there it goes to a linksys workgroup switch and then to my Ubuntu computer and my XP computer.
SME 7.4 is set up so I can access it, run commands, updates, shell, etc, from My ubuntu computer (remote access from local networks only.) I use putty for this.
Now what I want to do is remotely run the XP desktop from my Ubuntu machine. I have XP's remote desktop enabled with the firewall and network at port 3389. I am using rdesktop from Ubuntu and it says connection refused. I even tried this with putty which says permission denied. I also tried pinging the local ip address of my XP computer from Ubuntu and it was 100% data loss (Though pinging the SME gateway/server works fine.)
I am a bit burnt so I am done for today (crap, tonight my time, I always lose track of the time when I do things like this, lol)
So I am stuck. I am not sure what to do, what I am doing wrong or if there is a problem in Ubuntu 9.10, SME 7.4 or XP sp3.
I really need some help here :dazed: Any ideas on what I can try next?
