I have XRDP and LXDE insatalled on my linux machine, and I use RDP to connect to it remotely. Every time I try to connect to my Linux machine after I restart it, about 50% of the time I am unable to connect from Windows 10 RDP, I just get a standard timeout error. Only solution that I found is to just restart the machine and try connect again until it works. It usually works the second time. Once I successful connected into the machine the first time, I will have no problem connecting after. However once I restart the machine, the same problem will happen again.

Here is my UFW rule: 3389/tcp ALLOW xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx(my IP) 18.04 LTS
