I need help with xrdp; I need a remote desktop to the same "X server" the Pi boots into. Is this possible? E.g., if:

  • I have the Pi with keyboard but no display and I want see input through remote desktop.

  • I have the Pi connected to my TV and I want control it via RDP from my computer.

I know how to setup xrdp and VNC but all of them start a new session for each connection. I need something like Teamviewer.

Try installing x11vnc daemon on the raspberry pi. Then run the command :

x11vnc -display :0 -usepw -noxdamage -ncache 10 -ncache_cr

Then you'll be able to connect to the active session from your computer.
