How to set up RDP session with a mac book

I ave no familiarity with the MAC. I have to set up remote access for one of my employees. We have established a vpn, but I do not know how to set up an rdp session on a mac. Any ideas???
1 Solution
try using logmein - its free and will do what you want
Once the VPN is established, use this APP, which is the same as MSTDC  ;


If you want to use the built in solution then you can enable screen-sharing in a mac, and have the option of connecting either via apple remote desktop, or VNC client from the PC,


you can then download any VNC client for PC/Mac/Linux and connect that way... vnc is relatively secure and efficient.

If you want the best performance you should always connect to a mac, from a mac, you can use the screen-sharing utility in /System/Library/CoreServices to connect to another mac with screen-sharing enabled.

Do you want to connect TO a mac, or connect to a windows machine over RDP - sorry im a little vague of your requirement ?
If you want to use RDP, simply go to www.microsoft.com/mactopia. Download the RDP client for Mac. Trust me when I say the settings from this point onwards are the same as a Windows client using Remote Desktop.
