How do I RDP into a Mac from Windows 8.1 Pro

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.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
