I installed the xrdp it works like a charm. Just use:
apt-get install xrdp
and then open the file /etc/xrdp/xrdp.ini and in [xrdp1] section cnahge username to username of the user for which you want to log in, leave ask for password and other option as default. I created a user called vnc for remote desktop connection and it looks like that:
[xrdp1]
name=sesman-Xvnc
lib=libvnc.so
username=vnc
password=ask
ip=127.0.0.1
port=-1

When connecting from a windows machine you need to specify screen resolution if you use the default windows RDP client settings the connection will be broken before you can even log in. In the windows client you do not put the credentials, as you will be asked for them when the connection is initialized. If you specify in the configuration file the username, the only thing you will be asked will be a password.

Hello adam-charlie,

I tried to use the remote desktop connection by windows 7, but it did'nt work (see attachement). The connection log says:

connecting to sesman ip 127.0.0.1 port 3350
sesman connect ok
sending login info to sesman
xrdp_mm_process_login_response:login successful for display
started connection
connecting to 127.0.0.1 5910
error - problem connecting

Have you an idea where the problem is? XRDP is installed. If I connect to my raspberry pi I have no problems connecting to it.

I think you should install the package tightvncserver in addition to xrdp.
