Ubuntu Hardy Terminal Services Client Problem

Monday 25 August 2008 - Filed under Default

Generally, I like to write about things that work on my blog but I’ve seen how just asking a question can sometimes bring a solution together. So here’s my current problem:

I am attempting to connect to a Windows 2003 Server via the Ubuntu Hardy Heron default Terminal Services Client and when I click connect the window just goes away. I’ve tried again and then that window goes away again. About 2-5 minutes later an error window will popup giving some sort of error. The last error message I got complained about talking to the sound card in some way.

I tried again by disabling the sounds in the client before trying to connect but it didn’t help. If you’ve experienced this problem please post a comment whether you’ve found a solution or not. I’d like to help raise the profile of bugs like this that get in the way of living in Ubuntu full time. Thanks.

    Stephen, Have you updated your system? I just tried again and it’s working fine now.
