Is there a open source RDP protocol server for Windows Home Edition, like xrdp for Linux? I figure that since Linux can server RDP protocol to Windows Terminal service clients, then there must be a open source RDP server that a person can install on Windows Home edition?

I am not looking for any of the VNC variants. My question is about RDP protocol only.

Windows has inbuilt support for remote connections via RDP without additional software (enable remote connections). What are you trying to do? – Richard Jan 20 '12 at 8:48
Windows "Home" doesn't come with that feature. Not in Windows 7 and it didn't with Windows XP either. – djangofan Jan 20 '12 at 16:07
I suggest you make this question about Home edition then. Corporate editions (including Ultimate) certainly do support inbound remote connection (for support). – Richard Jan 20 '12 at 16:51

I'm relatively sure there are no open source RDP server implementations for Windows.

Thanks. I just wanted someone else to verify my suspicion. – djangofan Jan 23 '12 at 20:10
