I can’t use the remote desktop viewer on SLED 12 either. At first I thought it was because I was trying to connect to a RDP server on a non standard port (3389) and perhaps there was a bug with that or I was some how putting in the port syntax incorrectly.
I tried one that was listening on port 3389. Tested connection to these on CentOS and Windows rdp clients and they work. Just doesn’t on my patched SLED 12.
I would be extremely surprised if this product has been out for months and not working for other people. So Im thinking there might be some config at my end?
Would be awesome if some one can actually verify that the out of the box RDP clients works on SLED 12?
Remote server is listening btw
user@my-desktop:~/Desktop> telnet server 3389
Connected to server
Escape character is ‘^]’.
Symptoms I get with the client is when I find a legitimate connection is the client window goes black for about a second then the client comes back to its normal gray window. No error message box. Nothing.
A bogus connection (where I intentionally put in a screwy port just goes black)
