I configured "Remote Administration" so I could, well, administer a server from a distant place.
I get a log-on-screen, and I can type my username and password. The thing is I don't have a mouse-cursor. Without it it's very hard to do anything. Actually, I have a mouse-cursor, but it's invisible : if I move my mouse, sometimes the user-icon lights up or the session-type or menu-text light up.

What can I do ? Thanks.

P.S. I had to disable ipv6 to get the logon-screen.
After experimenting some more I came to the conclusion that it's the clientsoftware that does not work properly.
When I use KRDC/KDE4 (I installed KDE3 from the DVD) it does not _show_ the cursor when I connect to a 11.1 PC. Connecting to a 10.3 PC works fine, just like rdp to an W2k3 machine.
When I use vncviewer on my 11.1 laptop I can connect fine to that 11.1 machine.
Is there some configuration that needs to be done ?
Thanks for any info.
Met vriendelijke groeten,
