XRDP – Open Source Remote Desktop Protocol Server (RDP CLIENT)

Xrdp is the main server accepting connections from RDP clients. Xrdp contains the RDP, security, MCS, ISO, and TCP layers, a simple window manager and a few controls. Its a multi threaded single process server. It is in this process were the central management of the sessions are maintained. Central management includes shadowing a session and administrating pop ups to users. Xrdp is control by the configuration file xrdp.ini.

RDP has 3 security levels between the RDP server and RDP client. Low, medium and high. Low is 40 bit, data from the client to server is encrypted, medium is 40 bit encryption both ways and high is 128 bit encryption both ways. Xrdp currently supports all 3 encryption levels via the xrdp.ini file. RSA key exchange is used with both client and server randoms to establish the RC4 keys before the client connect.

Modules are loaded at runtime to provide the real functionality. Many different modules can be created to present one of many different desktops to the user. The modules are loadable to conserve memory and support both GPL and non GPL modules.

Multi threaded to provide optimal user performance. One client cant slow them all down. One multi threaded process is also required for session shadowing with any module. The module doesnt have to consider shadowing, the xrdp server does it. For example, you could shadow a VNC, RDP or a custom module session all from the same shadowing tool.

Build in window manager for sending pop ups to any user running any module. Also can be user to provide connection errors or prompts.
