    Specs:
    2.2Ghz MacBook (4Gb RAM) + Dual 3.2 Xeon MacPro (16Gb RAM) + iPod Touch 32Gb
    RDP Remote Desktop App?
    I have just bought a new MacBook after using DOS/Windows based PC's for over 20 years. The last Mac I saw/used was in the early 90's. So far the switch is good. It's by far the best version of Unix to go for.

    Is there an RDP Remote Desktop compatible app out there for the Mac? I use my XP based laptop to connect to a number of Windows based servers, and so far this is the only thing I cannot do with my Mac.

    Thanks

    Microsoft do Remote Desktop connection for Mac if it's just windows boxes you want to connect to: http://www.microsoft.com/mac/product...p/default.mspx

    You'll need RDC 2 Beta (top right of page) if you have an Intel Mac

    Alternatively you could try VNC Enterprise edition:
