My work has a windows remote desktop where I can log in to the network from home...can I log in to this using my Macbook?

I am thinking this is why I would need Parallels?

There is remote desktop connection software for the mac, made by MS. If you google "remote desktop for mac" it should be pretty easy to find. I use it occasionally with the cisco vpn client to get to systems at work and it seems to function pretty well.

Also, I have links to the rdc and vpn software at home if you need me to post them later.

It works pretty well, but it hasn't yet been updated to mimic the most recent version of its Windows counterpart (more security options, etc).

EDIT: Just kidding, here's that link too:

Have you tried its a free software that allows you to remote into another pc/mac program. I have been using for quite a while now and it works well.

RDC from MS has the best performance.

There is no need for Parallels for this. Microsoft just release a new beta of the Mac Remote Desktop Connection Software. There is also a nice open source program called CoRD that is in development. I have used both of these and the earlier Microsoft version, and they all work. I have never found a need to use Parallels for this.

If I want to remote into a computer from home from my mac at school, what is the program that is best to use? I use RADMIN at work, but that is expensive. What program is the best for that use? My family isn't very PC literate, so I have to help them when I'm at school and would like to have a program that does these types of things. Thanks!
