You can download it




Based on the work of FreeRDP and rdesktop, xrdp uses the remote desktop protocol to present a GUI to the user.


The goal of this project is to provide a fully functional Linux terminal server, capable of accepting connections from rdesktop, freerdp, and Microsoft's own terminal server / remote desktop clients.


Unlike Windows NT/2000/2003/2008/2012 server, xrdp will not display a Windows desktop but an X window desktop to the user.


Xrdp uses Xvnc or X11rdp to manage the X session. To learn about how xrdp currently works, click here and here.
