    Just to confirm, you are logging into the GUI session with Xorg and not Wayland?
    Which desktop session are you using?

    I was attempting to use and xorg and upon entering credentials, i just get a black screen.
    Inputting that echo command returns x11

    Is the firewall enabled? If so can you temporarily disable and test the xrdp connection?
    If you also ssh onto the system, can you tail the log to see what is happening?
    journalctl -f

  • Firewall enable, but still not working...I also using WinSCP that is also not connecting with my Suse Server

    So you have physical access to this machine? Sounds like the sshd service is not running either...
