Make sure you do not have any other VNC servers installed like vnc4server or tightvncserver.
Code:
sudo apt remove xrdp vnc4server tightvncserver

Install xrdp and tigervnc server

Code:
sudo apt install -y xrdp tigervnc-standalone-server


Swap places Xorg with Xvnc so Xvnc goes first.

Code:
sudo nano /etc/xdrp/xdrp.ini


Connect via Xvnc (first in the client list) with native Windows Remote Desktop client.



Ubuntu (the same setup as Raspberry PI):

Remove other VNC servers

Code:
sudo apt-get remove xrdp vnc4server tightvncserver

Install tightvncserver and xrdp
Code:
sudo apt install -y tightvncserver xrdp

Connect via Xorg (first in the client list) with native Windows Remote Desktop client.


OMV armhf:

OMV armhf:

Download:
libssl1.0.0_1.0.1t-1+deb8u7_armhf.deb
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/armhf...0/download

xrdp_0.6.1-2_armhf.deb
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/armhf/xrdp/download


Code:
sudo dpkg -i libssl1.0.0_1.0.1t-1+deb8u7_armhf.deb
sudo dpkg -i xrdp_0.6.1-2_armhf.deb

It worked fine for me (ubuntu xenial, rock64) but I was not able to ser up my keyboard layout which is French-Swiss. Any ideas how to fix this?

On recent OMV builds there is remote desktop support plugin.
Works fine with xdrp/xorg "out of the box". Smile
