All these test activity I am carrying out on my AWS instance for my test purposes.

I am trying to install XRDP for Remote access on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12 SP3 (HVM), SSD Volume Type on AWS & stuck up. Actually I am trying to configure XRDP on the AWS Linux instance.

I followed this tutorial but no success : https://www.suse.com/documentation/s...igure_rdp.html'

Previously : All these options were pretty simple & straight forward on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP4 (HVM), SSD Volume Type. Can anybody please through some light on this !! how to configure Linux instance so that I can continue with the installation of SAP B1 9.3.

Current Issue : Getting the logging screen & after entering the credentails then everything is blank, I cannot do anything on the screen. No UI nothing, Even I tried setting the display to 16-bit or 24-bit only but no success.

So let me know your thoughts or suggest some document which explains how to configure Linux 12 for XRDP.
