I have two Fedora 38 boxes updated to the the latest packages as of today June 29th. On one I activate the ‘Remote Desktop’ feature in the standard gnome-settings. I then attempt to connect with rdp from a second machine also running gnome 38. I am using the gnome-connections program. While running gnome-connections from the command line, the following output is reported which seems rather odd.
[17:18:59:771] [21665:22020] [WARN][com.freerdp.crypto] - Certificate verification failure 'self-signed certificate (18)' at stack position 0 [17:18:59:771] [21665:22020] [WARN][com.freerdp.crypto] - CN = GNOME, C = US [17:19:08:785] [21665:22020] [ERROR][com.freerdp.core.connection] - Timeout waiting for activation ** (gnome-connections:21665): WARNING **: 17:19:08.064: Unexpected RDP error: 'Success.'
I have seen in prior similar issues that upgrading to mutter 42.2 is a factor, however, both of these Fedora 38 boxes are running 42.2-2 already,
Does anyone have advice on how to further debug this? Am I misunderstand something here? I think I have done what would most naturally be done by user. The final message is the most strange to me. I have seen in other reports here that the certificate verification is not unusual.
How much can I read into the error message? It seems to remote a timeout and then something is creating a ‘success’ message that is interpreted as an error.
The machines are connected through a common wifi network and I’m using their direct ip addresses.
