Setup Remote Desktop XRDP on Debian 9

Install XRDP

sudo apt install xrdp

Configuring the firewall

sudo ufw allow 3389

Modify the Xwrapper.config file when you get a blank screen when removing in.

sudo nano /etc/X11/Xwrapper.config


allowed_users = console


allowed_users = anybody

Restart XRDP.

sudo systemctl restart xrdp

Actually, reboot the entire server

When logging in and you receive the message: Authentication Required – Authentication is required to create a color managed device click cancel and it’s all working.

In case you get a blue screen after login I found the following code works to fix this when you use Gnome as your desktop

$echo gnome-session > ~/.xsession
$chmod +x ~/.xsession
