xrdp is a free and open source utility that constructs a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP)-like server for non- Windows systems. RDP was developed by Microsoft® and is the default remote desktop software on Windows®. So, you can install xrdp on a remote Linux server and use a tool like rdesktop or even the default RDP client to connect to that server—in other words, the client can be on any platform. The xrdp utility is designed to work with X.
If you encounter the below error while running the xrdp command:
xrpd: command not found
you may try insyalling the below package as per your choice of distribution:
|Debian||apt-get install xrdp|
|Ubuntu||apt-get install xrdp|
|Alpine||apk add xrdp|
|Kali Linux||apt-get install xrdp|
|Fedora||dnf install xrdp-1|
|Raspbian||apt-get install xrdp|
This desktop protocol is based on the FreeRDP and rdesktop projects. One notable advantage is that you can use an XRDP client utility on Microsoft Windows to connect to a Linux desktop running the XRDP server software.
