Running both NeoRouter server and client on an Ubuntu server. Running only NeoRouter client on several work computers. Remote access works great; can access work computers on both the user account and the admin account.

The problem is that I can't switch between accounts. Once I log out of a user account, my remote access screen goes dead - looks like logout never happened, and nothing works. I can disconnect and then reconnect to the remote computer, but the screen is black when I reconnect. Simply cannot see or interact with the login screen. This prevents me from logging in as admin to perform functions that require root privileges.

Can you please tell me what I'm missing, or is user switching simply not possible? Thanks for your reply.

hi mmcloud,

This is a limitation in Ubuntu's default vnc server (vino). To allow switching between accounts, you need to use a different vnc server program, like tightvncserver. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/VNC/Servers.
NX server can work with multiple accounts as well. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FreeNX.

Thanks,
Luke
