XRDP server on Fedora 13

To install XRDP server do
yum install tigervnc-server
yum install xrdp
allow RDP ports in iptables ( RDP default port is 3389)
nano /etc/sysconfig/iptables
# RDP connection port
-A INPUT -p tcp -m state -m tcp --dport 3389 --state NEW -j ACCEPT
restart firewall
/etc/init.d/iptables restart
to start XRDP server
/etc/init.d/xrdp start

To connect server use mstsc.exe in windows, rdesktop in linux - if you do not have it
yum install rdesktop

But if you use different from english localasation of fedora, you will see only english
Gnome and ???? instead of your local fonts in terminal

Add in /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh

if [ -r /etc/default/locale ]; then
. /etc/default/locale

Create /etc/default/locale and input your locale in it
for Russia examle of cat /etc/default/locale

Now you can use fedora RDP session with your native language.

in /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh you will see the hint, how to fix your PATH variable for xrdp session

Re: XRDP server on Fedora 13

The above instructions solve the problem often seen with xrdp wherein you get logged in but then get a message about a problem connecting to

There is a lot of bad info on the web that is NOT RELEVANT with regard to the current version of XRDP (in Fedora 13).

tigervnc-server should be made part of the requirements in yum when you install xrdp.
