General Information

The Microsoft Remote Desktop Client  is a program that allows you to securely connect to a separate remote Windows computer.  Once a connection has been established, use the programs on the computer as though you are sitting in front of it.  Steps must be taken to prepare the computer which you plan to connect to, as well as steps on the computer that you plan to connect from.  The Remote Desktop Client can be installed on Windows & Mac, allowing you to control terminal servers and remote desktops without directly using the computer.
