    Terminal Services
    I have pretty much decided to get an imac when the new models come out. My only question is can I run Terminal Services to log into a PC machine without running Windows XP on the Mac?

    My guess is that I will need to run Parallels in order to do it but if I can get away without doing that it would be fantastic.

    Thank you,
    Shanley

    Terminal services on the Mac to log in from another machine, or a remote desktop client for logging into a Windows machine that has Terminal Services configured? If it's the latter, yes you can.

    You can also do the former.

    One thing of note that I have learned when using remote desktop - for some reason if I use my companies secure client VPN software to VPN into my employer's network, I can't use remote desktop to log into the PC. Probably because it's all secured up and refuses requests. I'm sure there's something I could do to configure it to allow that, but I haven't bothered.
