I am able to connect to my  application server using the iPad, Windows xp/vista/7/8 and other smartphones and tablets. Using the same credentials on the Mac RDP 2.1.1 or 2.0.1 I am not able to connect. The Mac OS is 10.6.8.  

See attached message. The 3 reasons that appear do not apply. I'm looking for a 4th reason.

Need help.

Go to system properties and remote settings. Under the remote tab there is a Remote desktop section with three radio buttons, make sure you have Allow connections from computers running any version of remote desktop (less secure) selected.

If that doesn't solve the problem try the open source CoRD RDC client instead:

I was trying to connect from a Mac not a PC. How would I do this on a PC.

I believe Sag was suggesting you make those changes on your application server, not on the Mac.

But try CoRD on the Mac.

Strung is right, the setting you need to check is on the machine you are trying to connect too.

I am trying to connect to a Windows 2008 RT application server not another PC.

The setting is on the 2008 server. Check it.

The instructions for changing the settings are on the following page.  http://www.techotopia.com/index.php/Configuring_Windows_Server_2008_Remote_Desktop_Administration

Are your Macs joined to the Domain?  CoRD and Microsoft's RDP on the Mac will have problems connecting unless you change the setting on the Windows Server 2008 system.

I finally got it to work. One digit was wrong in the IP address that I was using, User error.
