Thanks for the comeback. The only success I had was using xfreerdp client. I did not try remmina (I suspect it uses the freeRDP client lib).

For server, it works when I run weston on x11 backend, then toggle screen-share. The rdp backend also works on my platform (mali based) but when launched directly. If I launch using drm backend, then enable screen sharing, then I only get a black screen.

I've had to put this aside for a bit. I may end up coding a rfb-backend.so (or vnc-backend.so) in the near future.
