It sounds exactly like the Apple Remote Desktop widget that ships with Apple Remote Desktop.

...for $600.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Just found this googling for other stuff...

How about this? CoRD:

Quote:
CoRD is a remote desktop client for Mac OS X ported from the UNIX program rdesktop. It is a Universal Binary, and allows you to connect to multiple servers concurrently. There are many features not yet implemented, but it is usable in it's current form.
Version 0.2 though so still in its infancy.

Well it might not be the same thing as you are looking for, but just thought I'd post this in case someone would see an interest in this app. :girl:

And no, it doesn't seem to have a widget either! LOL
