    Trying To Set Up 'Remmina'---Any urgent help please.

    Remote Desktop Connection using 'Remmina' for my daughter to use her uni 'cloud' from home to do her work.

    I have to set up
    Server / Computer / Host name: desktop.name-changed.ac.uk

    Gateway: rdgateway.name-changed.ac.uk

    Domain: network
    -----------------------------------------------------
    The problem there is no place to put the gateway settings.

    I have set up port 3389 in my firewall.

    Any urgent help please.

    At a quick look, I can not see Microsoft Remote Desktop Gateway Support in the features list for Remmina, without that you will not be able to get a connection.

    Most Linux and Mac RDP clients do not have this, iTap and the new Microsoft variant being the ones that work for Mac/Ios/Android. Not seen a Linux one yet though.

    I think freerdp might support that 5 year old feature of Windows

    Does freerdp work now, didn't some time ago but not looked at a Linux client for some time. The native Microsoft Mac client had the same problem. Is strange as rdp gateway is not exactly New as you say.

    Yes and I opened 3398 .

    I tried 'bridge' network connection in virtualbox and set up the win7 firewall and my network one.

    I use 'Smoothwall' as my network firewall.

    I also set up a win7 dual boot on the laptop, but it still will not connect when running from windows, it's got to be smoothwall !. three days doing it.!!!! She needs to do her uni work.

    Just to clarify, you are trying to access an RDP session on uni servers from a linux laptop? what program are you using as a RDP client?

    Thanks

    Ah just seen Win 7 in virtualbox,

    Bristol University | IT Services | Remote Desktop Gateway Service see section marked manual settings, it is for Bristol uni, but it should give you the jist for a gateway connection.

    or see:

    Remote Desktop from Debian through Terminal Services Gateway | Agmosoft LLC although not sure what base PCLinuxOS is using though.

    Thanks

    I am pretty sure Remmina does not have RDP Gateway support, as numerous tickets/forum requests are open for this feature to be added.

    Although not sure why Win 7 won't connect, as long as you can get general net access in a win 7 VM, RDP should work. Maybe try the above instructions on how to use the settings you have been given.

    You shouldn't have to open ports in your firewall, as you will be requesting outside from inside which will usually be open, you should only need to open ports if other people are accessing an RDP server in your network.

    Probably could have condensed 3 posts into 1, but first day back at work, and haven't yet drank my weight in caffeine

    Have you got any https inspection or deep packet inspection running on the sw, this could easily break it if it is rewriting the tunnled traffic. Test by putting you windows box in front of the sw on the modem, if that does not work talk to the uni and your isp.

    ooooh, I know the above issue seems like a networking one, but this is interesting: https://ifconfig.dk/freerdp/

    is your smoothwall (express i'm guessing?) firewall policy set to half open or closed?

    if so you will need to allow all the ports for remote desktop gateway in the OUTBOUND rules (I haven't used smoothwall express in a while so cannot remember the exact pages/terminology - sorry!).

    It looks like her uni servers are down
    I took my daughter to her friends house and it would not work there, then she asked some of her uni mates and they said they could not get on it ..great four days wasted.
    I will keep you updated, thanks for advice.
