I have created an Ubuntu 20.4 droplet and I am using an SSH key to login (so, no password). I have also installed xrdp to be able to login and manage the server through a GUI using my windows pc.
I have set up the windows remote desktop connection and I am able to successfully connect to the droplet. However, when connected I am asked to provide a username and a password. I assume these are the server credentials. So, the name is root but I don’t have a password since I use SSH keys.
How can I log in without using a password?
