Step 1: Login to your ubuntu server via ssh.

Step 2: Install XRDP Packages by using below commands.
# sudo apt-get update
# apt-get install xrdp

Step 3: Allow RDP port 3389 in your server firewall if firewall enabled.

Step 4: Restart the XRDP service by using below command.
# sudo /etc/init.d/xrdp restart

Step 5: Now you can verify the remote connection. You should be able to connect to the server via Xrdp with your server root username and password. If you are using Linux as your Local desktop you can connect to the server via Remmina app. If you are using windows as a local desktop, Windows users have an RDP connection application by default on their machines.
