Developer's Description

X11-based Windows terminal services (RDP) client.
(Note: TSclientX is also available for PowerPC Macs as a separate download)TSclientX is a Remote Desktop Protocol (also known as Windows Terminal Services) client for Mac OS X. It appears to be a native Mac OS application, but is in fact an assembly of open-source software working in concert to provide functionality similar to Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection. Additionally, TSclientX offers an integrated VNC Viewer and SeamlessRDP support. Audio and file redirection for RDPv5 sessions are supported.What makes TSclientX interesting compared to other Mac RDP Clients?- SeamlessRDP makes it possible to run individual applications on your Mac rather than a full Windows desktop.- Multiple instances of TSclientX can be easily started and run concurrently.- Stability and speed on Intel Macs (and PowerPC Macs for that matter) has been found by many to be superior compared to the official Mac RDP client. The most interesting ingredients are:
  • rdesktop 1.5 - http://www.rdesktop.orgAn open source RDP client for Windows NT Terminal Server and Windows 2000/2003/Vista Terminal Services, integrating Cendio's SeamlessRDP technology
  • tsclient 0.148 - http://www.gnomepro.com/tsclientA frontend for rdesktop and other remote desktop tools
  • VNC Viewer 4.1.2 - http://realvnc.comVirtual Network Computing
  • libao 0.86 - http://www.xiph.org/aoA cross platform audio library with CoreAudio support.
  • The GUI uses an optimized GTK+ build, specifically compiled for TSclientX. Like most Unix-derived software on the Mac, Apple's X11 is required. There are no other prequisites. It will not interfere with MacPorts or Fink installations already on your system.
