Connect to current session on Raspberry pi using xrdp and vnc

Connect to current session on Raspberry pi using xrdp and vnc


I assume that Raspberry Pi is login into desktop and user Pi is the owner of it.

1. install xrdp and x11vnc
apt-get install xrdp x11vnc
 
2.Change default setting for xrdp so will always connect to current session 
edit /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini


[xrdp1]
name=Active local login
lib=libvnc.so
username=
password=ask
ip=127.0.0.1
port=5900

3. run first time x11vnc as user Pi to setup password
 
4. depends on Raspberry version 
 
- add this line at the end of /etc/rc.local but before exit 0
 
 
...


su - pi -c '/usr/bin/x11vnc -auth /home/pi/.Xauthority -display :0 -usepw -listen 127.0.0.1 -noxdamage -ncache 10 -ncache_cr -viewonly -forever -bg'


exit 0

- or if this does not work add at the end of line of /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

@/usr/bin/x11vnc -auth /home/pi/.Xauthority -display :0 -usepw -listen 127.0.0.1 -noxdamage -ncache 10 -ncache_cr -viewonly -forever -bg
 
reboot raspberry.
 
Login using windows remote desktop or other software into raspberry pi
on pop-up window provide password which you setup before.

It will connect to current session, and keep x11vnc running in the background so you can reconnect anytime
