Subject: pyhoca-cli cannot launch XDMCP session
Date: Thu, 3 Mar 2022 13:17:45 -0700
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: pyhoca-cli
Version: 0.4.0.3

I'm attempting to launch an XDMCP session that is suspendable and
transferable from one workstation to another. My setup has two workstations
each of which can connect to a "session-server", which in turn does an
xdmcp query to a host I'll call "xserver". Note that the xserver in this
setup is an old solaris machine that runs X, but doesn't have the x2go
server packages installed.

Here's my ascii diagram of what I tried to convey above:
workstation1/workstation2 (x2goclient, pyhoca-gui and pyhoca-cli
installed)  ->   session-server (x2goserver installed)  ->  xserver (xdmcp
enabled)

I set up a session using "pyhoca-gui", which results in the following:

------------------------------

When I use x2goclient, I'm able to launch the session, suspend the session,
and transfer the session between workstations as expected.

When I use pyhoca-cli to create the session, I get the following results:

% pyhoca-cli --server session-server -N -P pyhoca-xdmcp

I'll note here that this also doesn't work with pyhoca-gui (I'm sure I'm
supposed to write this up separately, but I think it's useful to have all
this information together in one place):

% pyhoca-gui

command ,,XDMCP'' is not available on X2Go server .
pyhoca-gui[16667] (PyHoca-GUI) NOTICE: [pyhoca-xdmcp - session failure] The
session startup failed.


Finally, I will note that if the session is created by x2goclient, then
suspended, both pyhoca-gui and pyhoca-cli can successfully resume the
session created by the x2goclient.


Here are the versions I'm running:
