Hello Folks.

Considering that some of open issues have existed for more than 1 year, I would like to be a moderator of this project.

I have forked FreeRDp-WebConnect in my GitHub account.

https://github.com/winstonhong/FreeRDP-WebConnect

Let us work together to fix the open issues of FreeRDp-WebConnect.

I summarize the existing open issues as follows.

Issue #1: Unable to run FreeRDP in Windows
I can login normally and the Remote Screen is shown.But when I make a left mouseclick, the login screen is shown and the RDPService is crashed.

Issue #3: Unstable RDP connection
When the connection is a few seconds old, and I move the mouse, I get the following error: Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)
https://10.0.1.50/js/wsgate-debug.js Line 672 (= Event handler for mouse move events)
And after this error is thrown a few hundred times in two/three seconds the RDP connection is dropped.

Issue #4: Could not connect to RDP backend.
i identified 2 and solved only 1 the second problem i fixed with a workaround.
1st problem can be fixed bij disabeling network level authentication.
Second problem i had is i have user logon names firstname[space]familyname the problem is that you cannot use any character in a logon name that is not allowed in a URL. eg [space] is send as %20 so your logon fails.
Workaround is do not enter any credentials so you will be asked in the RDP session.
O and the log also only stated "Could not connect to RDP backend." without any further information so that was not of much help.

Issue #5: Invalid URL generation on custom SSL port
Two engineers fix this issue. I will test their source code later.

Issue #6: Problems with libehs
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #7: screen refresh/repaint with windows 7 RDP session

  1. When dragging a window, the screen is not refreshed properly. The previous window is not cleared. When the options "disable wallpaper" is enabled this is even worse. When I press the "show desktop" button the the screen is repainted and all "dirty windows" are cleaned. With a windows server 2003 this does not happen.
  2. When the option "disable theming" is enabled. The "Start Menu" and "Taskbar" are not properly displayed.

Issue #8: Wrong mouse positioning when canvas is positioned
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #10: key bindings
On text editor i have some wrong key binding with the key :
RIGHT --> do --> ' LEFT --> do --> %
UP --> do --> & DOWN --> do --> (
DEL --> do --> . INSERT --> do --> -
and some other...
My keyboard are in FR_fr have you an idea for fix this ?

Issue #12: How to compile the FreeRDP WebConnect source code on windows system?
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #13: compillation error
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #14: wsgate won't start; log entry "No certificate specified"
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #15: Compile the code error
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #17: Question: Does the desktop background (aka wall paper) shows up in windows 2008 R2
This is NOT the technical issue.

Issue #18: missing libfreerdp-locale.so.1.0 on Ubuntu 12.04
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #19: Compile Error
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #20: No domain setting passed
There is no way to log into an alternative domain from the web gui. At the moment, I have resolved the issue by setting a static variable in the index-debug.html file.
Without modification to the current code, one can only log into a PC locally.

Issue #21: freerdp webconnect not working behind haproxy
The only point which prevent me to do this is that the SSL version doesn't propose client certificates authentication and also that I have an apache SSL website running behind the same IP (thus I should use SNI to spread the traffic from port 443 to the correct backend).

Issue #22: Incomplete Screen Rendering
Duplicate issue as Issue #7
much of the screen on the remote PC is not rendered. I know that it is possible because the demo server at try.freerdp.net doesn't exhibit this issue. I have tried to compile a fresh git but that fails spectacularly

Issue #23: Questions about FREERDP
This is NOT the technical issue.

Issue #24: $500 Bounty
This is general issue.

Issue #25: Specifying login domain
I will confirm that this issue has been fixed.

Issue #26: Getting FreeRDP-WebConnect to run.
This is NOT the technical issue.

Issue #28: Hyper-V RDP access - Integrate cloudbase's changes
This is NOT the technical issue.

Issue #29: Can I get some assistance for installation?
This is NOT the technical issue.

Issue #30: fix for bug #5
This is the solution for the closed Issue #5.

Issue #31: no errors and does not appear to work when port is changed
If I try to change the port to something else, like http/8080 and https/4433, then I can connect to the login screen for rdp webconnect, but once I login, I get a blank screen, and nothing after that.

Issue #32: Wrong Keyboard Layout
Duplicate issue as Issue #10
Most of the keys are functional but some like the Pos1 key or the arrow keys are not working. Both windows computers are using German keyboard layout.

Issue #34: FreeRDP gateway and tokens
We have a management portal, and have access to hyper-v credentials and vm id. But we do not want these to be sent to client. Instead we would like to have tokens generated,

Issue #35: Need help for WSGATE to be working with TS Gateway
After installing WebConnect I could make it work with normal TS but did not find any option to make it work with TS Gateway.

Hi @winstonhong,

I'm going through all the open issues that have been reported. Most of them are obsolete. Would you like to help me in going to the list and test the issues against the current codebase?

Thanks!

I'm having trouble finding my exact issue, but the freeRDP webconnect is not rendering the remote desktop connection properly, it's distorting and cutting off pieces of the applications and the dekstop, I have attached a screenshot to help get what I am trying to explain across.
