Good Morning Experts,

I can successfully RDP into a Windows 8.1 pro pc from my MacBook air using the dmg image provided by Microsoft, but I cant seem to go the other way. I want to be able to RDP into my MacBook air from my Windows 8.1 pro machine. I know this may seem trivial ,but it's got me stumped. Your help is as always appreciated.

I don't believe you can use RDP to access a MAC (can do it the other way around but I don't believe the MAc OS has the capability for users to remote onto it in this way).

You need to download something like VNC to be able to do this.

Both of you are correct. I should have known. I used VNC Viewer all the time.
