Re: X2go issues/problems

Hi George,

well there are some minor issues we are aware about, but indeed we have large installations with
Win-to-Win. Nevertheless we are in the process of providing upgraded packages really soon which
incorporate a brand new stack of components which are known to behave better in general (without having
them tested thoroughly yet). Maybe its a good idea to get in contact with one of the companies behind x2go to
get some support and finding the specific issues you are having? I really think this is more of a
configuration related problem, as stated before, there are lots of successful installations also with
windows clients (including Windows 7) out there.


Best regards,

Michael Kromer

Hi there just think you would want feedback on X2go.
Its a great tool from Linux to Linux
But from Windows to Linux or Mac to Linux its downright 
unreliable and trust me when I tell you that it is unreliable.

On Windows it will only connect very randomly at best. There 
no predictability with it at all. I tried on the same network 
and its completely random when it connects. Which is not good.
You can diable all AV and its still the same. I only installed

Windows 7 and the installed the X2go client on that and its 
still unpredictable.

Me and a friend of mine spent over a week trying to make it 
work on Windows 7 and we couldnt make it work predictably.

With that being said what I did was to create a Lubuntu VM on 
a Windows 7 machine, ssh from the VM into the server I am 
trying to manage and it works perfectly. Yes its a lot of work 
but it works correctly.
