I downloaded Microsoft's RDP client for Mac OSX and when I try to connect to the Terminal Server at work it won't allow me to connect. I get the following error:

Microsoft Error Reporting log version: 2.0

I'm running Mac OS X 10.8.2.

Please don't create new tags unless absolutely necessary – we already had one for 10.8. Thanks! –  slhck Mar 23 '13 at 9:37

Unless it has been resolved, there are known issues with RDP between certain versions of OSX and certain version of Windows Server. See:

I'd try another client (e.g., CoRD). If CoRD works, then you know it's not so much a bug/config problem, but the RDP issue referenced above.

You can also try Ericom Blaze. Besides connecting to Terminal Server from Mac OSX, it will also accelerate and compress RDP, so it can improve performance if you need to open files like PDFs or PPTs.
