Configuring the xRDP server on Ubuntu 18.04

  1. Login to  VPS (via Putty).
  2. Perform the following updates: 

    sudo apt-get update

    sudo apt-get upgrade -y

      During the updates, select the keyboard language, and you also need to reboot:                                                                         
  3. Install and enable the xRDP utility:                                                                                                                                                                                            

    sudo apt-get install xrdp
    sudo systemctl enable xrdp
    sudo systemctl restart xrdp

  4. Install the xfce environment:                                                                                                                                                                                                        sudo apt-get install xfce4 xfce4-terminal
  5. Open the RDP port to enable remote connection:                                                                                                                                                                      sudo ufw allow 3389/tcp
  6. Restart the xRDP server for the changes to take effect:                                                                                                                                                              sudo /etc/init.d/xrdp restart
  7. Connecting to the remote desktop (mstsc.exe ). Enter the IP address of the server and click Connect:                                                                                               
  8. Enter the username and password for the user, click OK:                                                                                                                                                                 
  9. We get the desktop of the Xfce environment:
