This is a service that lets you remotely control and operate another computer. To control a host machine, it can be enabled on a graphical client machine in Ubuntu. Point-and-click users would benefit from this feature, as well as users who are unfamiliar with command-line operations. We will guide you through the steps of installing and configuring Xrdp on Ubuntu 18.04.

 

 

 

 

 

So let’s start,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Log in to the server with Sudo access

 

 

 

 

Installing the Xrdp application requires that you have Sudo access to the server.

 

ssh [email protected]_server_ip

 

 

 

 

 

Step 2: Install XRDP Packages

 

 

 

 

First, Update Repositories and Packages,



sudo apt-get update

 

 

Run the following command to install Xrdp after you have updated the server

 

sudo apt-get install xrdp

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3: Install your preferred desktop environment

 

 

 

 

 

Here we are using Xfce,

 

sudo apt-get install xfce4
sudo apt-get install xfce4-terminal

 

 

Using the below command, configure XRDP to use XFCE environment,

 

sudo sed -i.bak '/fi/a #xrdp multiple users configuration \n xfce-session \n' /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh

 

 

 

 

Step 4: Allow RDP port in Firewall

 

 

 

 

Use the below command if UFW is enabled,

 

sudo ufw allow 3389/tcp

 

 

The following commands should be used if Iptables is running on your server

 

 

sudo iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3389 -j ACCEPT
sudo netfilter-persistent save
sudo netfilter-persistent reload

 

 

 

Restart the Xrdp application once all the above changes have taken effect.

 

sudo /etc/init.d/xrdp restart

 



 

 

Now that the changes have been implemented, By now, you should be able to connect via RDP
