How to enable RDP in Kali Linux

SSH on Kali linux
vps hosting

The following steps assume that you have installed Kali Linux from the latest ISO and did the update procedure:

  • Apt-get update && apt-get upgrade
  • Apt-get dist-upgrade

In order to install the RDP server you run the following command from a terminal window:

  • Apt-get install xrdp

After xrdp is installed you can start the server with the following command:

  • Service xrdp start
  • Service xrdp-sesman start  (Thanks to Greg for pointing that out)  — UPDATE!!
  • If want it to auto start after reboot you need to run this command also:
    update-rc.d xrdp enable     (It will not start xrdp-sesman automatic)

    xrdp is installed on the Kali ISO. It is just masked. Won’t installing another copy mess up the default install?
