Xpra Proxy no longer working with 0.14.2

Description (last modified by Antoine Martin)


running "xpra proxy", "xpra start" (both CentOS 7), and "xpra attach" (on Win7), I was able to connect using version 0.13.8.
However, using the same setup with 0.14.2, the server gives me the following error:

2014-08-22 22:20:00,850 invalid_header(Protocol(SocketConnection(('', 31001) - ('', 59099))), "hello: {'named_cursors': 1, 'pango.version': '1.29.4', 'xkbmap_layout': 'de', 'proxy.python.full_ver"...)
2014-08-22 22:20:00,850 will process ui packet gibberish
2014-08-22 22:20:00,850 Received uninterpretable nonsense from Protocol(SocketConnection(('', 31001) - ('', 59099))): invalid packet format, not an xpra client?
2014-08-22 22:20:00,850  data: "hello: {'named_cursors': 1, 'pango.version': '1.29.4', 'xkbmap_layout': 'de', 'proxy.python.full_ver"...
2014-08-22 22:20:00,851 Disconnecting client Protocol(SocketConnection(('', 31001) - ('', 59099))): invalid packet format, not an xpra client?

From what I got until now, the server fails in xpra/net/protocol.py in the line "if read_buffer[0] not in ("P", ord("P")):"
If a client connects directly (i.e., without proxy), a prefix of 8 Bytes is sent which begins with a "P" (0x50) character. However, the proxy does not seem to forward these 8 bytes. The server then checks if the first byte is a "P". However, it is an "h" (from "hello:...") and therefore fails.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Sorry about that, r7420 should fix this. (r7421 is also worth having)

Does that work for you?

Will backport both to v0.14.x and make a new release.

Backport to v0.14.x in r7422, feel free to re-open if I've missed anything.

It works after I applied both, r7420 and r7421.
