    Hi There,
    I am trying to use remote desktop from a Windows XP PC to a Fedora 20 server, I have got as far as the "Login to xrdp" screen, in the drop down "Module" box all I have is 'sesman-Xvnc', when I login with the correct password I get:

    connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1 port 3350
    sesman connect ok
    sending login info to sesion manager, please wait....
    xrdp_mm_process_login_response: login successful for display
    started connecting
    connecting to 127.0.0.1 5910
    tcp connected
    security level is 2 (1=none, 2=standard)
    password ok
    sending share flag
    receiving server init
    error - problem connecting

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Why not just ssh to the server and use the command line?

    I would look into something like nomachine or something similar. They have a version that I believe is free for up to two people.
