Remote Desktop Into Ubuntu Machine From XP Machine
 
Hi,

I have set up Remote Desktop on my Ubuntu machine at home, sorted out the firewall setting etc and I am now trying to access the machine via a Windows XP machine via the internet.

I am using RealVNC - as I have done with previous installation. The XP machine connects no problem and the screen of the Ubuntu machine is displayed. But I get no mouse cursor and the screen does not appear to refresh after the initial load. I can click on a menu...drop out of RealVNC and go back in and the menu is displayed - so the mouse action is getting to the Ubuntu machine but the screen information isn't getting back to the XP machine.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

James

Can you access it OK from the LAN?

Xgl?
 
Turn off 'Desktop Effects' if you have it on
