RDP server on arch linux with sound

I am trying to make a RDP server on arch linux using the package 'freerdp' with command 'freerdp-shadow-cli'.

It works fine, I can connect to it and view the screen. However, there is no sound.

How can I enable sound?

P.S. 1: Please don't recommend me to 'forward pulseaudio to the device running RDP client'. I am lazy and I want to hear sound just through RDP client.

P.S. 2: I have tried 'xrdp' from AUR. However, when I connect to it I receive gray screen. I want to connect to running display (i.e. Display :0), not start a new one. I struggle to find a guide that allow me to do so. Using 'freerdp' is preferred. However, if it is not possible to enable sound on freerdp server, please tell me how to make a xrdp server that use running display and has sound.

Re: RDP server on arch linux with sound

My programming skill is limited, and there is no way that I can fix the code in freerdp to make sound work.

So, if using freerdp is dead end for me, is using xrdp feasible in my case?

That is [not] really implemented either: https://github.com/neutrinolabs/xrdp/issues/960
