From an Ubuntu 16.04 system, I am trying to make a remote desktop connection using Remmina Remote Desktop Client version 1.1.2 to a fedora server. I can login, but I get the message

VNC error - only supporting 8, 15, 16 and 24 bpp rdp connections

Then I am logged out. This seems to be a client based system, because I can login from a Windows system. How can I change the bpp for the client? Do I have to change the bpp for my client system?

In the settings for your Remmina Remote Desktop Client, there should be an option to adjust the "color depth", change that to a supported bpp (bits per pixel) setting and see if that works.
