Remote Desktop Connection.
Hi All,

So I use the Microsoft Remote Desktop connecton for Mac a lot. However quite often, it hangs, freezes and I have to force quit the application. Very frustrating.

Is there a better (pref free, but not needed) application I can use to connect from my MacBook to any Windows based machine?

Thank you for any help. :)

IF you have MobileMe Apple offers the free "Back to My Mac" service but I don't know if it works with Windows. I can peruse my Mac desktop at home from my hotel while on the road.

I've been using CoRD: Remote Desktop for Mac OS X to connect to my work laptop from home and have found it to work well. This app is free to boot, so give it a shot and see how it behaves for you..

@ baggss: Not what I am looking for, need Mac -> Windows. But thanks anyway.

@ RazOrEdge: Perfect! Used it for two seconds and already loving it.

Thanks so much! :D
