RDP from windows to centos7 using xrdp not working


hi guys,

my port forwarding is working as i can ssh into my linux box using moboxterm. but i cant rdp from my windows 8 machine into my centos7 box.

if i

sudo systemctl status xrdp i get:

● xrdp.service - xrdp daemon
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/xrdp.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
Active: active (running) since Tue 2017-01-10 17:36:29 GMT; 7h ago
Main PID: 3465 (xrdp)
CGroup: /system.slice/xrdp.service
└─3465 /usr/sbin/xrdp --nodaemon

Jan 10 17:36:29 FDS-s1A systemd[1]: Started xrdp daemon.
Jan 10 17:36:29 FDS-s1A systemd[1]: Starting xrdp daemon...

but no connection

th ip address is right...as my ssh is working
i have 3389 open on my router
my xrdp.ini says 3389 in globals

any ideas?

is there a better alternative to xrdp?

i have teamviewer but its cutting me off every few minutes

thanks

The port on your router may be open, but the linux box does not have it open by default.

Code:
# firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-port=3389/tcp
# firewall-cmd --reload
It also seems you do not have the service to automatically start, so you will have to start it manually before using it.

Cheers, just remember on rhel based systems all incoming connections are blocked by default except ssh when doing a normal install.

Enjoy.
