I have a Linux machine (computer A, Debian 8). I installed xrdp there (configuration is default). Now I can run remote desk from two windows machines (computer B and C) to reach computer A. However, the desktop I saw from windows machine is different from the one in computer A's monitor. For example, there is a terminal opened in computer A. When I run remote desktop from computer B, I did not see the opened terminal. If I start a new terminal from computer B by remote desktop, this new terminal window is not shown in computer A's monitor. If I run remote desktop from computer C, I can see the terminal window opened by computer B.

My goal is that the desktop shown in computer A's monitor and desktops shown by remote desktop from computer B and C should display the same content. How should I configure to achieve the goal?

  • One way is to use a vnc server that starts with the display manager, the login screen. When you can vnc into the machine and login to a desktop, as it is mirrored on the monitor, you are most of the way there. – jc__ Jun 14 '17 at 14:07
  • Oh I think you can use the X11rdp back-end too, but you must 'tell it' what display to use. Example the monitor is usually display 0. BTW: In my experience the X11rdp back-end runs smoother. I am doing this from memory, but I think its in the sesman.ini file – jc__ Jun 14 '17 at 14:14
