MAC and remote app

I have a Windows 2008 R2 server that I have used to create a remote app that I have rolled out to some XP workstations via RDP icons.  Is there any way I can roll the remote app out to MAC's?

You should check out TSclientX. The official Microsoft RDP Client 2.11 for MacOS doesn't support RDP Gateway or seamless RemoteApp mode; it only supports full desktop.

I have never used TSclientX.

I'm not sure what you mean by a "remote app"...do you mean you've built an application using some programming language that runs on your server and you want users or Windows and Macs both to access it? Or, do you mean that you've simply built an "app" that users can double-click on to start a remote viewing session on the server?

The first one I can't help you with because any application designed for Windows would need to be re-written and recompiled to run on a Mac OS machine. However, if all you want is an RDC shortcut for Macs to view the Server's desktop, all you have to do it go to any Mac on the system, install and launch Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (for Mac), create a "New Connection" by entering the server's IP address and the login information, test the connection to your server, and then save the Connection to the Desktop of the Mac using the "Save As..." option under the File menu in Remote Desktop Connection.

The connection file should be able to be distributed to and used by any other Mac as long as the machine has RDC for Mac installed. http://www.microsoft.com/mac/remote-desktop-client

Thanks for the link.  I see that tsclientx 'experimentally' supports 'seamless RDP'.  Do you think that's the same as RemoteApp mode? Or is that somewhere else in the link and I missed it?

I think that seamless RDP is probably similar/the same as RemoteApp. Try it. I don't have a Mac to use.
