I'm testing FreeRDP and when I try to connect to a host it shows the error: "Could not connect to RDP backend".

I tried to connect with wfreerdp.exe tool with successful result, so I don't know what else to look.

Thanks in advance.

I'm wondering if it could be caused because the host where i'm trying to connect does not have installed the certificate. Is the installation of the certificate mandatory?

I have the same issue. Tried all possible tests posted here - no joy. It seems we are not going to get any support...

I tried both, using IP and using host name. I also tried connecting to local LAN hosts and internet hosts but always get the same result.

Try editing the C:\Program Files (x86)\Cloudbase Solutions\FreeRDP-WebConnect\etc\wsgate.ini file and remove any SSL lines in there. Also make sure that the HyperV host IP is correct (including your credentials).

Also try using the 2179 port instead of 3389
