The Dude in WINE - cannot connect to remote server

Wed Feb 13, 2008 8:08 pm

I'm attempting to run the Dude in an Ubuntu 7.10 VM. With 2.2 it says "Error: connection closed". I tried 3.0 and was only marginally more successful: it said "Getting Stuff" (I got excited there!) but then asked if I wanted to "upgrade" to 2.2. First I said no, and it disconnected, then I said yes and it still disconnected.

If anyone else has similar experiences, please let me know.

successfully work with 3.0beta7 on OpenSuse 10.1 with XVNC and wine.
See comments arround ping and non root users at the FAQ.
On the server connect to the LAN address instead of .
Also enable tcp ports 2210 and 2211 at your servers firewall.
How to ebug at linux server:
ps xfu |grep bin/wine
Should show a process named ....drive_c/Program Files/Dude/dude.exe --server
Note that Process ID
lsof -p ProcessID |grep -e UDP -e TCP

If your network has high latency or you are working remotely the link between Server and client
does not work stable.

I am also running Ubuntu 7.10, and getting the "Error: connection closed" message. I have issued the ps xfu |grep bin/wine command, and get the following output:

1000 8879 0.0 0.2 2976 752 pts/1 S+ 11:14 0:00 \_ grep bin/wine
1000 8764 0.2 0.7 4360 1900 ? Ss 10:55 0:02 /usr/bin/../lib/../bin/wineserver

I have the Dude client opened on the desktop, but do not see the process named ....drive_c/Program Files/Dude/dude.exe --server

It is possible to connect a Linux Dude client to a Windows server, correct?

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

If you want to connect using dude client normally, you can try to limit your dude client downlink traffic to 256k (max). I have difficulty to connect dude server under wine, specially if i use wireless connection to remote our dude server.

Using PCQ connection with dst-address classifier and rate=256k, i can remote my dude server.

My conclusion about this case was dude server using wine need more than 3 Mbps to passthrough all data to dude client. That's why you got "connection closed" after several seconds you can connect using dude server.

Hello in order to make your server run correctly under ubuntu 7.10 all you have to do is just not to start whole Dude, but just dude.exe --server and then connect to it from other machine. Normal start of dude.exe does not bring up the server !!

On dapper do as suggested above however the server needs to be root ie
do this...

sudo wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Dude/dude.exe --server &

When you run the GUI tell it to look for a remote server but use the local ip!

That's it! Runs mostly perfect. (I got an exception when I tried to import images)

The Dude v3 works fine with Ubuntu 8.04

Mon Aug 04, 2008 6:02 pm

I couldn't connect to the server using The Dude v2 on Ubuntu 8.04. I tried your advices without success.

Then I removed version 2 and installed v3. Everything works fine.
