Do you (a) want to allow unauthenticated access to the X2Go Session
Broker or do you (b) want to retrieve a password from the session
broker and use that for X2Go session login?
(a) This should (in theory) be possible by simple setting
,,check-credentials=False'' in x2gobroker.conf. However, I have just
tested this and it does not work in the 0.0.3.0 preview of X2Go
Session Broker. I currently providing a patch for this.
(b) the UCCS client implementation in remote-login-service supports
plain text passwords being transmitted over the wire from UCCS server
to remote-login-service. This password then will be filled into the
login dialog of Unity Greeter.
As the storage and transmission of plain text passwords is something I
do not like about the UCCS implementation, I did not implement it in
X2Go Session Broker. This of course could be coded into the broker and
then Remote Login authentication in Unity Greeter should be a bit
My preference for reducing password input would be (a). With my
background information of your setup (broker is only reachable via
VPN) this would be less critical and could be set up with less effort.
