Screens are very slow to redraw, and general performance is very low while interacting with the remote server. Happens regardless of the available network bandwidth.
Configure the TCP send buffer size
- Edit the file /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini
- Locate the line that reads "tcp_send_buffer_bytes". Remove the comment character ("#").
- Edit the value so it now reads:
- Restart the service:
# systemctl restart xrdp
Configure the kernel network buffer size (optional)
- Change the current network buffer size to a larger value with the following command:
sysctl -w net.core.wmem_max=8388608
- Create a new file /etc/sysctl.d/xrdp.conf with the following content:
net.core.wmem_max = 838860
This will ensure that the value is properly set between reboots.
