Happy New Yeear Everyone.

@Dejan555
I may have made a very bad assumption as I had, indeed, envisioned simple PAM in your multi-user system. Aside from the PAM issue, either of these confront you:
  • Does this mean that should you be logged in at the console and you went to another PC you could NOT login?
  • You login on one PC, but cannot login from a 2nd?
  • IDs other than the root ID cannot login?
Just trying to understand.

gcmartin, I ran xrdp as described in goingnut's thread: on one PC
I ran Xorg as another user (not root, restricted, let's say it was user "dejan" )

From other PC I could connect as root but it logs in to already running X session of user "dejan" it doesn't start new X session as user root.
I think any user could connect if their password was supplied on x11vnc startup on server PC instead "woofwoof" but they would connect to whatever X session which already runs on server PC and not start new session.

The reason is that x11vnc in goingnut's package is configured to run with switches -shared and -passwd woofwoof (which I changed to my own root's password, if I changed to dejan's password I could probably connect as user dejan, but again to whichever X session was already running on server PC - don't know if I'm explaining this right )

Inspect files /etc/init.d/xrdp_pup and /root/Startup/x11vnc_start

Thanks for the explanation.

I think I understand what you share: "The login user is stealing an active user's session on DPUP486"

Yes, but I guess if pam was installed that xrdp would be able to verify credentials of any user instead the one with password supplied on x11vnc commandline and start new X session.

re XRDP: The pet-package is by purpose set up to connect to the running session - which is what X11vnc will do. To set up system where every logon gets a new desktop another server must be used - Xvnc is a possibility (from tightvnc/vnc or others). If you setup such a system nothing will be saved when disconnecting - meaning that you wont be able to go back to same desktop and continuing your work. That is at least what I have been able to set up...

Well I didn't think nature of x11vnc is able to do that in the first place.
I read on xrdp's page that several options are available like Xvnc, librdp usage and similar.

Thanks for your input goingnuts

Not sure why changes wouldn't be saved thought if it would work.

@nmlkngdm

Thanks for test results, sure amarok must be bit heavier on resources but it offers more options.

Re saving: Files saved and so on will be saved - but if you have open windows, documents, running applications they are lost at logoff - again: thats just the level I was able to reach...
Guess its like if you do an "Exit to prompt" from running X.

Ah, so there's no something like -forever option in x11vnc?
I already ran x11vnc as server before and xrdp only adds ability to login from remote desktop client - if you use vnc viewer client you get same thing without xrdp ?
It's good that it implements rdp protocol though.

I'll try some combinations with xrdp and see if anything works.

For X11vnc you log in and out of the running X-session - with "forever" you just prevent x11vnc shutdown when you exit - and you can reconnect to the state you left it.

With Xvnc-server you seems to log into a new X-session every time - and log of that (for you) unique session. After logout the session is closed. You can reconnect but you seem to get a new X-session then.

I tried compiling X11rdp but compiled binary gives error about loading fonts, couldn't get it to get past it.

I couldn't agree more dejan555, just showing a graphical representation for those visual learners out there, including myself.

In RDP world, there have been 2 states of existence. One when a logout occurs and another when a "disconnect" occurs.

On the logout state, depending on XRDP setup, 1 of 2 setup models exists
  • the user session is destroyed resources supporting any session is released, OR,
  • the user session is released, return to the available running pool ready for any subsequent login
Just thought of my use of XRDP-VNC services in Linux's past on Ubuntu-Fedora..

Hope this helps
