Package: X2Go Client (Windows)

Version: (Qt – 4.8.6)


I’m using the X2Go client to connect to my AWS dev instance. The AWS instance is Centos 7 based, while the X2Go client is Windows.

The configuration I use is simple, I provide the host name and port where session type is “XFCE”.

Whenever I connect to my AWS instance, it connect and it works fine for few minutes, hours sometimes, and then suddenly it crashed, and I have to kill the X2Go client process and restart it multiple times before it works again.

Another issue I’m facing is related to clipboard. Many times the clipboard functionality will stop working after 30-60 minutes and you can’t copy/paste data between client and server till you restart the client.
