Bug#974645: gnome-remote-desktop: unable to connect

Package: gnome-remote-desktop
Version: 0.1.7-1
Severity: normal

Perhaps a stupid mistake of mine, but I'm unable to connect from the
buster on my desktop to the buster on my computer. I am unable to find
any advice  on the Internet.

This bug report is sent from the laptop.  In Settings sharing is On.

On the desktop I used almost all clients and protocols available. For
example, Remote Destop Viewer gives "Unable to connect to VNC server".

I guess some useful information is in logs, but which logs?

I'm quite anxious to solve the problem quickly because of the bug


I will appreciate your help.
