    Check that the required ports are opened in the firewall.

    I use KRDC to connect to a remote windows server for work. The connection is using the RDP protocol, and itlooks like
    Code:
    <username>@<IP address>
    The connection is via a VPN. Your problem may relate to trying to connect over public internet, so you'll need to know the public IP address of the router for the RDP-client to connect to, and the router will need to be configured to forward TCP port 3389 to the destination computer's IP address.

    The blue screen you described sounds like what happens when authentication fails, or when the RDP server is not available (or running).

    Thank You,
    Believe it or not I found another page on the internet that had the solution. I didn't get Remmina to work yet but I will keep working with it. I did get KRDC a working. It has one tiny quirk that I do find irritating, (it locks their desktop so they see what i am doing) but i am not going to complain about a tiny thing like that. I am glad that I can stay in Linux.

    Hi Mike
    Could you share the page you found for the solution? I am also trying to connect from openSuse 12.3 to a Windows 7 box using KRDC and having no luck.

    Thanks Ray
