Use rdesktop to connect to Windows Terminal Services
Authored by: spacehaven on Dec 08, '03 11:26:41AM
On my Mac I use the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection, while I use rdesktop on my Sun box. Both are stable, but the MS one seems a little faster -- maybe it uses some undocumented (or yet to be reverse-engineered) optimizations.

I use this as well, and its wonderful. Its very fast, lets you do full screen, and you don't need to have X running.

Same here! I find it faster to use than RD on my P4XP Dell!
Its a simple, small download and requires a rather obtuse registration with Microsoft.
Because of it, I may finally rid my desktop of the Dell!
(well, not so fast..I still need it for HP Webdirect, Procurve and network hardware updating).

Sigh.

I would also recommend MS Remote Desktop Connection over rdesktop, particularly if you like to use extended desktop mode which I could never get rdesktop to understand (to be fair I didn't try very hard, MS RDC just works very well).
I used to use VNC on my work PC, but since I was upgraded to XP Pro I haven't turned back.
Be wary about mounting your Mac drives however, anyone that has access to your PC will have access to all the files on the mounted drive.
