reverse connection

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    Hi… i'm tryung jrdesktop and I find it very cute…

    my question is, how do I do an automatic reverse connection ??

    I would like to connect to a server just running a viewer from my pc without doing new connection…
    what I want is every time that I turn on the pc where is installed the service as a server makes a connection to my pc in viewer mode…
    is this possible ??
    I have tried but allways I have to do new connection to give the ip adress of the viewer, and I don't know where to configure this ip in the server to find the viewer in automatic…


    and very good work

    Hi, thanks for using jrdesktop

    yes i think it's possible;

    edit wrapper.conf to set the parameters you want (ex: starting the server using a reverse connection, or in a secured mode, ….)

    when you turn your machine on, jrdesktop looks first to wrapper config file & started using your parameters

    I Hope this helps

    Is "reverse connection" what I need for connecting behind a firewall? What command lines do I need on the server and viewer to accomplish this? I'm trying to do the same as running VNC viewer in "listen" mode.

    Yes, this is the commands you need

    Server side

        jrdesktop server -r
    Client side

        jrdesktop viewer -a server_ip_adr -r
