    Thanks and very help full post. thank you so much. But I want to run only application on web, please help how we can access windows or Linux application from web browsers. i know one method that is using SSH in which we can access apps from Linux to windows and vice versa by enabling x11 forwarding in ssh conf file. but that uses commands, but i want to make access to those apps using GUI. either from browser or app. So can you help me with that?

    Hi Gabriel,

    I have followed your instructions in a Google Cloud Platform. Put Guaca in a ubuntu box. And I have to other instances, Linux, and windows which I am trying to reach. I can see the Linux machine, but the other windows instance, no success. It even doesn’t appear in the connections dashboard. It says connections error. Any ide? Thanks in advance!

    Hi Gabriel,

    How do we connect to Connection Machine without Guacamole authorized user, once we generate the link can we connect to it without login?

    For anyone stuck on invalid logins: Make sure that the user mapping also is readable for the tomcat user. *[email protected]*

    Hi Gabriel,

    thanks for the tut. Unfortunately I can’t login. The user mapping seems to be unrecognized even when I link the file to .guacamole folder in tomcat7s home dir, /usr/share/tomcat7/.guacamole. I’m running Debian 8.5 and installed the server via apt-get install instead of compiling it myself.

    Do you have any idea?

    For anyone else stuck on this where you get a 404 status.

    Move the guacamole.war file to the Webapps folder within your “tomcat7” folder.
