You just need a RDP client. Those are available for all usuall operating systems. You can find a list down below.The client needs to be late enough to support certificate based authentification and modern cypher suites. (
ciphers AES+aRSA:AES+aECDH:AES+aECDSA) Because of this a ssh tunel is not further needed.

Depending on your client a visible certificats check is possible.
After verification of the server you have to provide your username and password to establish a session with you account.This can either happen after connecting or your client ask for before that.
A session can be hold alive even if you aren't connected.
To achieve this use the xrdp-dis command or the equivalent of your client. (Sometimes it's just closing it).When you reconnect to your session it will be revived. This can happen from a completly different computer and also the resolution of the connection window will be adjusted.
Care: This can result to severe loss of data if the application is actually running!!For Firefox and Thunderbird you can execute the scripts repair_firefox.sh and repair_thunderbrid.sh. Those clean up the locks that prohibit these to run multiple times.
The RDP server authentificates itself by certificate to the client.Care: Notifications about a errand certificate should never be ignored. Check the fingerprint(look above)!
For access only TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2 with following ciphers are allowed: AES+aRSA:AES+aECDH:AES+aECDSABe sure the version of you RDP client support those.
The RDP client is preinstalled on Windows.
