xrdp from windows into centos 7


hi guys,

trying to mstsc from my windows laptop into my centos7 box over the lan...

first things first...do i need to port forward my modem for 3389 to the linux box? i wouldnt think so...as im doing this over the lan...but i cant get it working...

i installed xrdp via the epel repository
started the service
made firewall exceptions
selinux commands were also added

i was following a guide...but my remote connection is not working

Some bug?

Configure your mstsc connection for 24 bit and try it.
