Gnome RDP client "gnome-rdp" - problems with VNC + encryption + RealVNC v4

Post by JDS » Wed, 21 Mar 2007 23:44:45


Does anyone know how I can get an Open Source VNC client working with all
the newer features of RealVNC's 4.x series?

I'm always getting error messages about "this VNC client supports version
3.8" (or 3.3 or something) whenever I use encryption, and sometimes when I
use a password-protected VNC session.

Anyone? Anyone?

Also, how about desktop scaling? Why is it that only krdc, the KDE RDP/VNC
client supports this? This is one of the many examples of why KDE is
really the superior desktop environment -- completeness of features/expert
friendliness. Ah, whatever...

But seriously, though, anyone know how to make Gnome-RDP work with RealVNC
4.x?

Take a look at TightVNC if you don't want to use the closed source RealVNC.



Use the KDE version instead?

What I *would* like is a combination of krdc+gnome-rdp. Ah, but that I
was programmer enough to implement it! (I am not).

gnome-rdp likes:

* Minimizes to systray/notification area
* Saves sessions, along with prefs for those sessions. Good session
management. Groups of sessions.
* Attractive
* Very easy to use!

Krdc likes:
* desktop scaling

You might want to look at NoMachine website and FreeNX, free
implementation of nx server from NoMachine. Its more faster than vnc
connection and also its easy to setup.
