Remote desktop protocol (RDP) is a secure network communications protocol designed for remote management, as well as for remote access to virtual desktops, applications and an RDP terminal server. RDP is available on most versions of the Windows and Linux based operating systems.

Key RDP functions include the initialization of connections, the transfer of data between clients and servers and negotiation capabilities. This tool makes it easy for someone to connect a local device to a remote computer from a distant location. This feature, however, is disabled by default in windows. In Linux, we have to install packages like Remmina, xfreerdp, xrdp and x11rdp to use the RDP features.

There are applications like Microsoft Remote Desktop, aRDP etc. in the Play store from which you can take the RDP sessions of a Windows Server or Linux based server.
