Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When working from Windows, I prefer to use RoyalTS instead of the default Microsoft RDP client, because it allows me to save multiple connections, the credentials of the connection, etc; as well has having more than 1 connection open at a time.

Is there a similar (or any) alternative to the Microsoft RDP client for connecting from OSX to Windows? Aside from VNC, that is; at this point I'm hoping to continue using the RDP protocol.

CoRD is my pick for RDP access on OS X.

Setting this as the accepted answer because of its similarity to my favorite Windows RDP app (RoyalTS). Thanks! –  Adam Tuttle Feb 2 '10 at 17:06

I can confirm that Thinomenon's RDC has the advantage to be compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion when CoRD, TSclientX and apparently Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection are not.

I'm using CoRD on Lion. Haven't tried it on Mountain Lion. –  Adam Tuttle Jan 7 '13 at 16:30

http://www.thinomenon.com/products/RemoteDesktopClient/osx.aspx is the best RDC client available for free on Mac/Windows/Linux

Yep, you can use TSclientX, an alternative to RDP Client for Mac OS X.

TSclientX is freeware.

Any diffs in performance? –  Patrik Björklund Feb 1 '10 at 20:06
    
@P.Bjorklund Not as far as I can tell. It works just like tsclient on Linux, excellent performance. –  John T Feb 1 '10 at 20:30
    
Sorry, this is a decent answer but CoRD is closer to what I was looking for. So just a +1. –  Adam Tuttle Feb 2 '10 at 17:06
