XG’s Quick Note: Ubuntu Remmina Remote Desktop – Unable to connect

Often I had been getting the following error connecting to Windows Terminal Servers using the included Remmina Remote Desktop Client on my Ubuntu 14.10 workstation:

Searching around the web, I came across the following solution which seems to work:

  • Open the Remmina client and select the host you can’t connect to
  • Click Edit (Pencil button on toolbar)
  • Click the Advanced tab
  • From Security, select TLS from the pull-down menu
Remmina's proper security selection for connection problem
Remmina’s proper security selection for connection problem

And that’s it! I can consistently connect.
