    Fail to run xrdp, controlling a kali linux device from an ubuntu device

    I'm trying to control my Kali Linux laptop via an Ubuntu machine using xrdp, but I'm getting the following error:

    This;
    client_ip=::ffff:1

    tells me that XRDP is trying to use IPv6 have you an IPv6 set up on your network?

    I suspect your local machines are connected over IPv4 on your home network, so you need to set up XRDP to use this instead..
    Have a look at the command line manual as it suggested..

    man xrdp
