I have found it pretty difficult to setup and configure tightvncserver-xrdp on linux. I fancy this solution since it would be the most universal. The server would be accessible without installation procedures from virtually any machine.
I have set up linux system as follows:
-installed tightvncserver and xrdp via apt-get:
-configured as follows in attachments.
The result is that winsows rdp connects to server and remote desktop is started. Instead of kde a connection log is shown and session halts here (attachment)
I have not setup X in the server in any way (including permissions or displays etc)
I have nowhere near the server so I would appreciate a command line solution, since ssh is working.
Once agin client is windows xp sp3 rdp and server is ubuntu 9.04 (kde). Locally X works fine.
