1.Prerequisites:

Install EPEL repository on CentOS 6 (In this article we take Centos 6 as an example)

Once installed, Check again by this command:

# netstat -antup | grep xrdp

tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:3389 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 1919/xrdp

Add the service to startup, when system reboot, it will auto start this service:

# chkconfig xrdp on                                                                                                                                       # chkconfig vncserver on
