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..

Regards
