    Default xrdp - restrict by ip

    Hi all. I would like to utilize xrdp for remote desktop sessions from windows boxes but I would like to restrict access to certain ip addresses. Is there a way of doing this?

    Thanks,

    Rene

    There is nothing about this in the man page? I ask because you do not tell which documenatation you consulted.

    In fact you did not tell very much aa all. Like whicj version of openSUSE arre you talking about? Which desktop do you use?

    Allways reckon that people here have no crystal balls. Allways reckon that not all people do things as you do them and thus immediatly understand your goals and what you are doing to achieve them.

    My apologies for being so vague. i would have thought that this was a more general linux question. The version is 12.1 with a kde desktop and i cannot find any documentation on how to do this. Perhaps a better question would be how to restrict port 3380 to certain ip addesses.

    Thanks,

    Without myself reading through the documentation (I still do not know if you did read some like
    Code:
    man xrdp
    ), I can may be offer a general solution.

    When you use xinetd as wrapper for the daemon, you can do this because xinetd offers this for every service it listens for.
    Code:
    man xinetd
    (through the only_from parameter).

    You can start and manage xinetd through YaST. But it may be handy to prepare the configuration for xrdp in /etc/xinetd.d/ first.
