    There are huge security implications between what xrdp does and what x2go does. On the same LAN, it probably doesn't matter. Over the internet, there is a world of difference. No way should anyone use xrdp over the internet.

I don't actually need to use the remote servers, only access them to update software.

    . I'll try to implement this in the morning. Basically, i am trying to get remote access to look and behave exactly as though I was physically there, no matter how slow or poor the connection. I just need to apply system updates and occasionally upgrade plex media server, i don't plan to actually use it for anything else.

    I lack the skillset to do any of that via the terminal. I have an identical setup at home, I have no trouble keeping everything working, has been for years. it's only the remote access that doesn't work.

    thanks for your help
    If you are only updating software then use SSH. Its super slim. You don't need the full desktop to just run updates. SSH to the system and run
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt full-upgrade
    The system is now fully updated.
