How to get XRDP to work

I know, there are many, who have scepsis on XRDP. My simple reason to choose XRDP is: when I want to see something on my server while I am not at home, I'd like to use a program, which almost every computer I am seeing on a normal day, is having: MSTSC. No need to install other programs or using a webbrowser (that's a horrible solution!).
Now I have cleared that, I'd like to ask for help on the problem:

I downloaded the RPM-package of XRDP (xrdp-0.4.0-1.el5.rf.i386.rpm on and installed it. And then what? No service called XRDP is running, nothing is listening on port 3389 - what do I have to do, after the package has been installed? I tried "abracadabra RUN", but that didn't do the trick (!)...
