Description

I am running Ubuntu 14.04.4 with WinSwitch? 0.12.21-1 from the WinSwitch? repository. The server runs Xpra 0.17.0-r12447, which I compiled myself (https://hub.docker.com/r/urzds/xpra-test/).

The server is being started with XPRA_PASSWORD set.

Every time I try to connect using WinSwitch?, I see following message on the server:

2016-04-20 15:20:21,693 New tcp connection received from 10.2.8.0:43164
2016-04-20 15:20:21,699 Disconnecting client 10.2.8.0:43164:
2016-04-20 15:20:21,699  invalid packet format, not an xpra client?
2016-04-20 15:20:21,700 Connection lost

The client just lists the connection as not connected (red X icon) in the list of connections, without any further message.

P.S. WinSwitch? is of course configured to use Xpra as the "Seamless Default" session type.

What version of xpra is on the client?

The server is being started with XPRA_PASSWORD set.


You mean winswitch or xpra?
This may override the password specified by winswitch, which would make the client use the wrong password.
