    RDP. Although the protocol was actually designed by Citrix, and MS bought it. Though strangely the Wikipedia page doesn't mention this but this is what I learned when taking MSCE course.

    I think you are confusing ICA and RDP

    Good point, looks like it. It's been quite a while, those classes.

    When looking it up, you come up stuff like this:

    "RDP stems FROM Citrix and the ICA protocol. Citrix was suckered into sharing technology with Microsoft so they could get direct access to the underlying API's a few years back. Citrix was smart in that they didn't share the ICA protocol with MS. MS then developed RDP as their thin protocol."

    and

    "Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol, also known as Terminal Services, is basically a Microsoft licensed version of Citrix ICA. Microsoft basically built RDP on top of ICA. IIRC, Citrix sued Microsoft for the feature, which is why Windows XP Pro is only supposed to allow one user logged on at any time"

    Haven't you heard??? Jump for iOS is fantastic.. on my iPhone, I use a nice little (but no longer updated) app called ServerControl. SC lets you browse directories, selectively turn on/off services.. and reboot/shut down a Windows box.

    Jump is configured for VNC and RDP connections.. and has a great interface. MS would have to put out a really nice application to even match what Jump already offers.

    Pazuzu.. iOS users have had RDP access to windows since the first week the first iPad was released...

    Hi. I have a new MacBook Air and want to get into a PC windows server but having trouble getting into the site. It gets to windows but not the site. Using  Microsoft Remote Desktop but works only for iPad, not the MacBook.

     

    How do I get CoRDs? Is it an app or program? Is it free. Thanks for your help

    CoRDs is at the download link here:

    http://cord.sourceforge.net

    You should just be able to put in details of your server and access it. There's a Microsoft Remote Desktop app for the Mac too:

    Why don't you use the Microsoft Remote Desktop app for the Mac?
