connection time-out while trying to run a windows vps from Ubuntu.


Hi All,

I am not all too literate with computers but nonetheless decided to rent a vps. Because of the nature of its function, this vps needs to be a Windows. I'm trying to connect to the server through Remmina but get a connection time out. According to the vps client support, everything on the Remmina interface is filled in correctly. Still, the connection times out.

I tried to install consecutively Teamviewer, AnyDesk, and VNC so the vps client support could assist me through one of those programs. Although all three the programs appear in the software centre after downloading them, they all fail to install when I click the button. My attempt at getting them installed through the terminal failed as well.

I posted the problem on the Remmina community site as well, where the developer suggested me to install the program's latest version (which I did, with the same result). The developer hinted it might be a firewall issue, but I doubt that's the case...???

So, my question is either:
- how can I download either Teamviewer, AnyDesk, or VNC, so the support people of the vps renting company can find out what's going on?
- what might cause Remmina's failure to work?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Greetings,
Guf.

partially solved

one part of the problem is solved... after hours of browsing and reading, found that GDebi package installer is better than what is used by default (strange to default the lesser quality option...!?). And indeed GDebi installed Teamviewer without any problem.

Next step: get connected to the VPS.

And exactly how is stating this going to help him???
Are you just trying to bump your post count??

Part of the OP's problem may be that the software needs a direct connection to the netwwork to keep it alive. Running it under an emulator may only interact with the VIRTUAL network driver not the real one.

Hi Lena01 and welcome to LQ.

Please take some time to look at the Site FAQ as well as the Newbie Sticky thread to give you some insight as to how LQ works, how best to post, and how best to ask questions.

You have jumped on some other threads in a similar fashion as this one where your information, while intended to be helpful, is not a great match for the discussion at hand.

While we are not trying to project any lack of welcome, we also do wish to point out that in participating in the forums, it is helpful to post when you do have something to add to the conversation, versus information which is somewhat related, but not the focus of the discussion.

I am referring to these:

In response to a thread about an LG phone where there was a technical question, not one asking for a summary about the manufacturer.

In response to a thread about Lattice Diamond software on Fedora, in the Linux Software forum. A better suggestion would be to start a new thread in the New Member Introductions forum

Consider if you had taken the time to create a technical question about a certain topic, to find that a member replied to your question, with similar "helpful" advice, or their personal introduction, but didn't really attempt to answer your original question.

problem solved

Hi all, and thanks to those that helped

After hours of tinkering, I've managed to solve the problem. It appeared to be a combination of incomplete information on fiends to fill in on behalf of the vps rental company and a difference in keyboard settings between the server and my computer.

Quite happy and relaxed now, so cheers!

Hopefully, one day I'll be knowledgeable enough to help out someone else...
Guf.
