XRDP not working with Windows Remote Desktop

I’ve installed XRDP (my SBC is odroid C1+) and when I try to use Windows Remote Desktop I’m getting a vague “error - problem connecting” error. See attached screenshot. I’ve tried different desktops to no avail. I’m using module: sesman-Xvnc.

Any ideas as to what I’m doing wrong?

SOLVED. I uninstalled xrdp, then installed TightVNC, then xrdp. It seems it’s a prerequisite? How do I let the devs know about this?


Thanks for the report, we’ll run tests and investigate:

I tried the fix and still cannot get in. I uninstalled both xrdp and TightVNC. Then installed TightVNC and after the reboot I installed xrdp. I still get the login error. Any ideas? Thanks!!


I’ve just tested Odroid C2 with Jessie and a fresh install of XRDP. No additional VNC software is required.

Sesman-Xvnc is required as Xorg module is not available on Jessie (AFAIK):


Please can you confirm device used?

I made a mistake. I was using the wrong user name. Thanks

I make a fresh install recently of latest diepi but I can’t connect to it using RDP. On older diepi 159 I was using xrdp and MATE and it was wokin ok, but now I am gattin these errors in file xrdp.log

In fact I don’t see anything on port 3350. I think I am missing somethig…

Yeah that would be one beginner question if XRDP is installed on default?

I cannot connect to my rpi via remotedekstop from windows to it :-/

Do i need to add it?

DietPi is offering xrdp as software package within our catalogue. No need to do manual installations.

Ok, Joulinar, maybe my memories were wrong, I did this few times on Ubuntu, Fedora and raspberry, unfortunately without documenting it exactly.

So it can be that I just use your automated script! Perfect script then, I think on other machines I had more trouble. Sorry I deleted my “memories” entry with bullshit info…
