freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

James Dore
Hi all,

Having got my machines booting and loading freerdp or rdesktop automatically, I’m now facing connection issues: whatever settings I apply in thinstation.conf.builtime or .user never make a connection to the terminal server.

I am using settings that I have tested manually using the same hardware booting to icewm and running the client from there:

SESSION_0_FREERDP_OPTIONS="-f -d college -u '' -p -a 16 -x l”

but the connection never starts - I get “Preparing to run freerdp” and a similar message in rdesktop, prompting for a username.

If I feed it a username (Which I don’t want to do, I want the Windows 2008r2 Terminal Server login screen) and click OK, I get “Click Yes to reconnect”, which continues in a loop from there.

What have I broken?

Cheers,
James

Hi!
Try to remove
/ts/5.1/packages/freerdp/build/extra/etc/cmd/freerdp.getuser
and
/ts/5.1/packages/freerdp/etc/cmd/freerdp.getuser

Then rebuild image. It must help.

Hi James,
 
I have been working on a very similar sounding project.
 
In your options I believe that you need to include the following switch '-no-auth'. This will then allow the client to connect without requiring credentials. I found that I still needed to pass the domain using the -d switch in order to stop the session from trying to log on to the local machine of the RDS server.
 
I am interested though in how you managed to get your client to automatically boot into the freerdp session. I keep getting various X-window errors, and am having to boot into icewm first before trying the connection. I would be interested in seeing a copy of you thinstation.buildtime and build.conf files to see what the differences are if that would be possible?
 
Hope this helps anyway.
 
Craig.

Re: freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

James Dore
Hi Craig,

I’ve got —no-auth in the conf.buildtime file as well as -u ‘’ (no username supplied) but neither have the desired effect.

My files are attached - I do specify icewm as the window manager, if that’s what you’re missing. It’s just that SESSION_0_ is my freerdp session. Icewm needs to be present, if not specified.

In reply to this post by James Dore
You have not broken anything. go into the freerdp package in your build environment and delete etc/cmd/freerdp.getuser or something like that.
 
This is fixed in the latest git.

Re: freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

James Dore
Hi Don,

Thanks for that - I did a git pull which seemed to do some updates, and rebuilt - but there has been no change. I deleted the freerdp.getuser file and rebuilt, with no change either.

Any further suggestions?

Thanks,
James

Re: freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

Don Cupp
Have a look at the contents of the files in the build/extra/etc/cmd folder of the freerdp package. These files get copied to the base of the freerdp package during the first build. They may contain some conflicting arguments to the freerdp cmd line. If nothing else, you will understand ts a little bit better afterwards.

Re: freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

Michael K-2
Have you tried running freerdp or rdesktop from the command line first to determine the correct options before trying to autostart as a session. You'll find that you need to determine the correct settings first.

You may find that you HAVE to specify the username because you are enforcing NLA on the server side. I'm not 100% sure of this, but I had to do this for at least one of the servers I connect to. If that's the case, you want /etc/cmd/freerdp.getuser and make sure "-u" is the last option. You might need /etc/console/freerdp as well, as the password prompt goes to a shell.

You should be able to see the difference between a Windows to Windows 2003 versus a Windows to Windows 2008 RDP connection. That one dialog that asks for credentials before actually connecting to the server is NLA. With 2003 you just connected to the server (you see the window with the background and the login prompt within).

But you'll really need the terminal to figure this out, otherwise you're spending a lot of time rebuilding and watching the output of /var/run/applications/freerdp.* to see what the output is.

Try with --no-nla first which is another option that tells FreeRDP to not do the initial NLA negotiation. If NLA is not completely turned off, rdesktop seems to be useless from my experience.


Good luck,
Michael

Yes, I have - the options all work as anticipated from the command line (or gui session). (See my original post where I explained this).

Like I said, the -u ‘’ and/or --no-auth flags worked fine (and as expected) when used from the cli or gui.

Ah, that’s one I haven’t tried. I’ll give that a whirl.

Re: freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

James Dore
In reply to this post by Don Cupp
Hi Don,

Thanks for this. I have examined the files as you said, and there were no options that might conflict; indeed they were repeats of many of the options I’m specifying in my thinstation.conf.buildtime file.

I am copying my thinstation.conf.buildtime to a thinstation.conf.user in a /thinstation.profile/ folder on my boot USB - is that a correct way of doing things (as I want to boot from local media rather than PXE)

Cheers,
James

Re: freerdp / rdesktop startup issues

James Dore
Gah. Problem is nothing to do with Thinstation or freerdp. If you want me I’ll be in the basement re-educating our Windows Terminal Server admin. Ignore any loud thumps or bangs you might hear.

Cheers,
James
