Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0 (Beta)

by Bruce Elgort

MS Remote Desktop Connect Client Beta 2

Today Microsoft released a beta of the next version of their Remote Desktop Connection Client for OS X. The Mac 2.0 beta is a universal binary, supports dynamic screen resizing (including a full screen mode), has more "mac like" user experience, supports multiple sessions and now supports all configured printers on your mac. Oh and I almost forgot to mention that it also now has support for Vista.

Martin,

CoRD seems very nice. Thank you for the recommendation.

Looks very cool. Thanks for the CoRD link.

Aus dem Readme:

"Vista Network Level Authentication is Not Supported
Network Level Authentication (NLA) is a new authentication method in Windows Vista that completes user authentication before you establish a full Remote Desktop connection and the logon screen appears. Remote Desktop Connection Client Beta does not support network level authentication. To enable Remote Desktop connections from your Mac, select the option “Allow connections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop (less secure)” on the Remote setting panel on your Windows-based computer."

Na klasse.

CoRD is the best for this. I Have used it for as long as I can remember! Basically, when I realised the then current version of Remote Desktop only supported a single session.

Simon Barratt, 2007-08-02

Actually Simon, it was always possible to get RD to run several sessions, simply by creating several copies of the program which could be run simultaneously.

That is what we got people to do in the days of PopG, anyway, before Microsoft cut us off at the knees. But that is all ancient history now...

That is an interesting hack. ;-)
