holy moley its guacamole!!

here is my guacamole server! with guacamole you can setup your own remote server with vnc, rdp and ssh support. based on tomcat and open source. I installed this on top of ubuntu 16.04 lts.

i used this – chase wright blogged this and it worked for me!!

The following will run a full dist-upgrade then install Guacamole 0.9.9, Tomcat 8, and MySQL for you. All you have to do is pick a MySQL Root Password and optionally change the guacamole_user password.

Additional Credits to Emilio and Alex for the RDP fix(s) in comments section.

#Extract Guac
tar -xzf guacamole-server-0.9.9.tar.gz
tar -xzf guacamole-auth-jdbc-0.9.9.tar.gz
tar -xzf mysql-connector-java-5.1.38.tar.gz

# MAKE DIRECTORIES
mkdir /etc/guacamole
mkdir /etc/guacamole/lib
mkdir /etc/guacamole/extensions

# Install GUACD
cd guacamole-server-0.9.9
./configure --with-init-dir=/etc/init.d
make
make install
ldconfig
systemctl enable guacd
cd ..

# Move files to correct locations
mv guacamole-0.9.9.war /etc/guacamole/guacamole.war
ln -s /etc/guacamole/guacamole.war /var/lib/tomcat8/webapps/
ln -s /usr/local/lib/freerdp/* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/freerdp/.
cp mysql-connector-java-5.1.38/mysql-connector-java-5.1.38-bin.jar /etc/guacamole/lib/
cp guacamole-auth-jdbc-0.9.9/mysql/guacamole-auth-jdbc-mysql-0.9.9.jar /etc/guacamole/extensions/

# Configure guacamole.properties
echo "mysql-hostname: localhost" >> /etc/guacamole/guacamole.properties
echo "mysql-port: 3306" >> /etc/guacamole/guacamole.properties
echo "mysql-database: guacamole_db" >> /etc/guacamole/guacamole.properties
echo "mysql-username: guacamole_user" >> /etc/guacamole/guacamole.properties

# This is where you will want to change "PASSWORD"
echo "mysql-password: PASSWORD" >> /etc/guacamole/guacamole.properties
rm -rf /usr/share/tomcat8/.guacamole
ln -s /etc/guacamole /usr/share/tomcat8/.guacamole

# Restart Tomcat Service
service tomcat8 restart

Setup MySQL, change the MYSQLROOTPASSWORD to whatever you set it to and if you change the guacamaole_user password here be sure to go back and change it in /etc/guacamole/guacamole.properties

mysql -u root -pMYSQLROOTPASSWORD
create database guacamole_db;
create user 'guacamole_user'@'localhost' identified by 'PASSWORD';
GRANT SELECT,INSERT,UPDATE,DELETE ON guacamole_db.* TO 'guacamole_user'@'localhost';
flush privileges;
quit

Populate the database you just created. Again, change the MYSQLROOTPASSWORD

cat guacamole-auth-jdbc-0.9.9/mysql/schema/*.sql | mysql -u root -pMYSQLROOTPASSWORD guacamole_db

Now just log into your guacamole server using the default “guacadmin/guacadmin” and set it up. If you want you can remove all the downloads (cleanup)

# Cleanup Downloads
rm libjpeg-turbo-official_1.4.2_amd64.deb
rm guacamole-server-0.9.9.tar.gz
rm guacamole-auth-jdbc-0.9.9.tar.gz
rm mysql-connector-java-5.1.38.tar.gz
# Cleanup Folders
rm -rf mysql-connector-java-5.1.38/
rm -rf guacamole-auth-jdbc-0.9.9/
rm -rf guacamole-server-0.9.9/
