12 Connecting via RDP

If you installed SLES for SAP with the RDP option activated or if you installed from a KIWI NG image, RDP is enabled on the machine via the service xrdp. Alternatively, you can enable RDP later as described at the end of this section.

You can connect using any software that supports RDP, such as:

  • Linux: Vinagre (available in SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop/SLE WE and openSUSE) or Remmina (available in openSUSE)

  • Windows: Remote Desktop Connection

Important: Connection parameters

Make sure to set up the connection with the following parameters:

  • Port: 3389

  • Color depth: 16-bit or 24-bit only

Procedure 12.1: Setting up RDP

If you have not set up an RDP connection during the installation, you can also do so later using the following instructions.

  1. First, create the necessary exception for your firewall, opening port TCP 3389 in all relevant zones. For example, if your internal network uses the internal zone, use the following command:

    # firewall-cmd --zone=internal --add-port=3389/tcp

    This is a temporary assignment for testing the new setting. If you need to change more than one zone, change and test each zone one at a time.

  2. Make the new configuration permanent:

    # firewall-cmd --runtime-to-permanent
    # firewall-cmd --reload

    For more information on using firewalld, refer to https://docs.suse.com/sles/15/html/SLES-all/cha-security-firewall.html#sec-security-firewall-firewalld.

  3. Nxt, set up xrdp.

    Install the package xrdp:

    # zypper install xrdp
  4. Enable and start the xrdp service:

    # systemctl enable xrdp
    # systemctl start xrdp

    You can now connect to the machine.
