There is a huge performance problem with xrdp. Its painfully slow.

I have however been able to fix it. And here’s how it works. Assuming you already have a working xrdp with xfce4 on ubuntu:

 

Connect to the server using mstsc client on windows

open run prompt in windows and type mstsc

Once you have the window, enter the ip and click on advanced

Choose options as shown in below images (these are actually for better performance)

Then once connected, enter your username and password to login to the remote linux system
