Microsoft Remote Client 2

Microsoft recently unveiled Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2, a major update to its Windows PC VNC connection software, allowing users to access an unlimited number of clients. Microsoft gave RDCC a visual overhaul, offering users a more familiar interface, and also included access to print servers from both Intel and PowerPC-based Macs. Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2 is available from Microsoft's website for no charge.

Included in the new version are Microsoft's Error Reporting Tool and AutoUpdate programs, as well as a new help viewer to improve support options. Security has also been tightened through the use of Microsoft's Network Level Authentication method found in Windows Vista.

    RDC is not VNC

    VNC is a different protocol. RDC is windows only.
