let's check status of VNC Server and what port it is running on

Code: Select all

systemctl status vncserver.service
ss -tulpn | grep LISTEN

Yup, that was the problem!
When I typed in the first command I got this response:

Not really sure why that wasn't installed but anyways, I installed TigerVNC and now it's working fine.
Thank you so much for helping me out!

that's the problem. If you would have used dietpi-software, all dependencies would be installed automatically. DietPi magic would take care on everything. :D

Just running apt-get install xrdp will not pull TigerVNC. Therefore it was needed to install TigerVNC manually. ;)
