I have 2 machines - a windows 7 and an opensuse server. they both use the same router.
I noticed when setting up xrdp (remote desktop), I could only remote desktop into my opensuse 11.3 machine from my windows 7 machine when I was logged into the opensuse machine locally (tried as both my user account and root).
I remoted in, and was logged in locally already, so I logged out locally, and it killed my remote connection.
Also, when I ping the openususe IP from windows machine, I only get a response back when I am logged in locally to the opensuse machine. How do I fix this? I have not setup up an networking with samba or anything
