Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid – rdesktop ERROR: recv: Connection reset by peer


Using rdesktop to connect from Ubuntu Lucid to Windows Vista I found myself encountering the following error:

ERROR: recv: Connection reset by peer

Upon further investigation I found that I had Network Level Authentication enabled in Vista.

Click Control Panel, System, Remote Settings and then select the Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure) radio button to allow rdesktop to connect.

  1. Hello,
    I connect to my Win 7 network server from my PC (ubuntu 10.4) via “Terminal Server Client” and I too faced the same issue, i.e. recv: connection reset by peer. I had enabled “Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)” in our Win 7 pc but the issue remains unresolved.
    Is there any other solution to get out of it. Its really annoying to work like this.
