RDP Server for OS/2?
« on: June 06, 2022, 01:39:52 am »
Hi Everyone.

FreeRDP is great as a client. But I want to go the other way. I want a RDP Server for OS/2.

OS/2 server is sitting in a VM, and I'd like to remotely administer it from a Windows host (or I guess I could use the FreeRDP client to remote admin OS/2 from another OS/2, but that's not really likely in my case).

What are my options?

-Chris

Hey Chris,

What VM are you using? I'm pretty sure VirtualBox has a built in server that can be connected to. https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-connect-to-a-virtualbox-vm-desktop-remotely/

Cheers,

Hi Chris,

Long time no see/hear.
If you can, I would recommend VNC, thats what I use for my headless OS/2 server.
Can we assume you want RDP as that is what you are already using for everything else?

Hi Ian.
Yes, indeed, it has been quite a while.
To answer this, and all of the questions above:
<this will drive you nuts>
I am currently running my two WSeB servers in MS Virtual PC running on XP, which itself is running on ESX (under vSphere).  8)
So at the moment I RDP into the XP host to manage the two OS/2 VM's.
So even if it's a Linux host, xfreerdp works well :)
So I've avoided setting up/using VNC - for now.
The thinking was to move the two MS VirtualPC's to native ESX Vm's and remotely administer them directly.
<sigh>

Hi Chris,

Nothing to drive anything nuts outside of normal OS/2 users doing the standard nutty things :)
ok, I see why you are doing it that way.

Your options?
Finding a RDP Server that can be compiled under OS/2,
I had a quick look at Xrdp server a couple of years ago but it looks like a wrapper for a X Window Server.
I put it in the to hard basket and stuck with VNC.

If you could movethe VM's to Virtualbox - you can use RDP - seehttps://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch07.html
