In this segment, we are going to show you how to install “XRDP Remote Tool on Raspberry Pi All Models”

What is XRDP?

xrdp is a free and open-source implementation of Microsoft RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) server that enables operating systems other than Microsoft Windows (such as Linux and BSD-style operating systems) to provide a fully functional RDP-compatible remote desktop experience. It works by bridging graphics from the X Window System to the client and relaying controls from the client back to X.

According to the developers, the protocol works with rdesktop, FreeRDP, and as well as Microsoft’s own Remote Desktop Client.
