Thread: Apple remote desktop

  1. #1

    Default Apple remote desktop

    I have started using my macbook on my mainly windows network.
    I have some VM's set up on this network that i do all my work on. So i use my mac to remote into those machines.

    The biggest problem i have found is that the remote desktop client on the mac is really "laggy".
    I seems to be slow and does not repaint very fast.
    I have tried different settings but cannot seem to get anything working correct.

    Any suggestions on what to do to fix it up or any other RDP apps i can try.

    btw its a Macbook pro 17" mid 2009 (core 2) with 8gb of ram. The network is a 1gig wired connection

    Would a APP like TEam Viewer not work for you? Works well when i want to access my Windows PC from my iphone 4.

    I use the Remote Desktop Connection app that is included with Office 2011. Works perfectly with very little lag.

    I've got the same problem. Downloaded Microsoft remote desktop for mac on my iMac, but it is extremely slow when trying to connect. Takes for ever to bring up the screen.

    I use my windows laptop and that connect just fine.

    I haven't had any personal experience... Still waiting for any kind soul to donate a macbook to me

    I know a client that I used to support swore by all that is Apple, and he used to use the Remote Desktop client for Mac - no hassles.

    Have you got a new-ish version installed? Seems like 2.1 is the latest version
