I have installed the necessary GNOME Desktop packages. Installing GNOME Desktop on CentOS 6 on a console before installing xrdp.

But the solution is quite simple. You need to install the tigervnc-server package and just the tigervnc only.

# yum install tigervnc-server

Restart the xrdp again.

# service xrdp restart
