What is xRDP?  xRDP is a server which allows you to  connect remotely  to ubuntu via Remote Desktop Connection. It helps you to use  Microsoft RDP  to connect to ubuntu without any  configuration.


Now open a new terminal window (ctrl + alt + t)
If you want to connect  to your ubuntu box from Windows 7  via Remote Desktop install xRDP with the ‘sudo apt-get install xrdp’ command like shown in Figure 1.

After the download and installation process is finished go to your windows 7 box and  run remote desktop client,  type ubuntu hostaname or ip address and click  connect.   The xrdp server will ask for the username and password of  the ubuntu machine.  It is so simple.
