Remote Desktop (RDP / Terminal Client) to Linux Server


I am using the xrdp software since almost 3 years now, to make the remote desktop facility available for Linux servers.  The options shown after connecting to remote desktop connection through xrdp is bit confusing for newbie, but here is an article by david latham which describes it with details…


One issue that has been seen with xrdp is, it doesn’t support RDP ver.6. which comes with Windows XP service pack 3. So if you update your XP OS with Service Pack 3, you will keep getting “protocol error” while connecting through xrdp. Till xrdp issues a compatible version, one can use the older version of mstsc.exe and mstscax.dll with xrdp.
