I am trying to connect to a windows server using grdesktop (rdesktop). When I try as a non-root user it fails with the following error message: "ERROR: recv: Connection reset by peer"

However, if I run grdesktop as root, everything works.

Any ideas on how to fix rdesktop? Is there some permissions problem?

Does it work if you use rdesktop directly, bypassing any wrapping from grdesktop? What options are you passing to rdesktop? How long does it run before it exits?

No it did not work with rdesktop directly. I'll try to post the options I used tomorrow from work.

I immediately receive the error when I try to use grdesktop or rdesktop as a non-root user.
