Linux - issue with using XRDP on Workstation 12

Guys,

We have some new RHEL 7 machines (3.10.0-514.16.1.el7.x86_64) that we're having XRDP/Workstation 12 issues with.

I use Windows 7 64bit Remote Desktop to connect to a RHEL 7 machine via XRDP, but when I start a VM, I get this error:

vmware_rhel7.png

The VM powers on, but all I see is a blank grey screen (like whats behind the error messages above).  Now, if I login locally I see the VM fine, but over XRDP we cannot view VM's.

Whats crazy is if I pause the VM, the preview window will show the regular "CTRL ALT DEL" screen which is our normal login window.

Is this a Workstation thing or a XRDP issue?

The XRDP version is: xrdp-0.9.1-5.el7.x86_64

Thanks

Hello,

I solve this problem on Centos7 + Xrdp + tigervnc.

I did not choose "vnc" option, but choose Xorg session and problem solved

You don't need vnc server in this configuration.

----- this is my installation steps

yum install epel-release

yum install xrdp

chcon -t bin_t /usr/sbin/xrdp

chcon -t bin_t /usr/sbin/xrdp-sesman

firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=3389/tcp --permanent

firewall-cmd --zone=public --add-port=3389/udp --permanent

firewall-cmd --reload

in /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini

----

change security_layer=negotiate value to

security_layer=rdp

systemctl enable xrdp

systemctl start xrdp
