I need to be able to vpn from a mac computer to SBS 2003 then remote desktop to an XP computer. From reading the various posts I know this is possible but are the vpn and rdp components already part of the Mac OS or will I need to download something? Sorry, I do not know the Mac OS, they will be buying a system this weekend so I would assume whatever the latest os is for mac.
As you can see I am not a mac person! Thanks.

    If you are using Microsoft Routing and Remote access. You can use the PPTP client in osx. It is in internet connect.

    Hope this was ok - since you each answered part of the question I split the points, gave eoinosullivan a little more since I can't split 125 eventually and that was more difficult part of the question. Thanks!
