For anybody looking for simple solution to run remote desktop on Armbian (Banana Pi):


apt update
apt upgrade
apt install lxde tightvncserver xorg xorgxrdp

Then you can connect from (for example) Windows via mstsc (Remote Desktop) to your Pi.

I like tightvnc it works well on almost all Linux and Windows machines...and client from windows can even use a java client so no need to install software (other than java)

I install it on my kids PC's...hide the start bar icon and run as a service, then can "remotely view" what they are doing...
I also have a headless Win 7 desktop PC (an old quad core acer) w/a 4TB harddrive running my PLEX home server
(I will soon hopefully upgrade to a openmediavault server soon)
