Yeah, most definitely. That's how Gary McKinnon claims to have eavesdropped on NASA computers back in '01 or thereabouts. There are Microsoft RDP clients & servers that will run on OS X. It doesn't sound like that is actually happening in this case but it's definitely possible. If you're concerned, you can use command line utilities like netstat, ...

No - that program lets your computer reach out and "spy" on other computers. Unless your system has malware (which gladly we are starting to learn about thanks to some brave whistleblowers) - you can control your Mac's security in the Sharing Preference pane. When you want your Mac to be remotely observable, choose screen sharing or remote management and ...

I'm pretty sure it can get installed as part of Office, as well as separately. One app not to worry about, in fact - as it can only be used to 'dial out' to a Windows machine, not another Mac.

Late 2012 Mac Mini with 16GB using RealVNC. On LAN have run 3 active users at once running Xcode 6 simultaneously. Biggest problem is in setting varying screen resolution since Mac has multiple giant screens and The Windows PCs don't. Works great. We could add another user if we wanted to with 16 gigs. As to how this applies to the original question, while ...

The problem is that the NumLock state gets stuck to On inside the RDP client. Tools like numlockx don't help - the client returns the state back to On. It's not just the allow keys that stop working - Ins, Del, Home, End, PgUp and PgDown are affected as well. The only solution I found is to remove all references to keypad keys affected by NumLock from the ...

If you need to set a VNC password - you might need to also kickstart the ARDAgent, you can use this command instead of just loading the plist: sudo /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Resources/kickstart -activate -configure -access -on -clientopts -setvnclegacy -vnclegacy yes -clientopts -setvncpw -vncpw mypasswd -restart ...

I believe the bitmap caching was an option with earlier versions of RDC on the Mac; but according to this link, it is no longer possible to change this. Duplicate IPs Are there conflicting IPs on the network? A possible cause I've seen given these symptoms is duplicate IPs. Duplicate IPs on either the Windows 10 box or the Mac can cause this issue. Try ...

I don't know when this changed, but the Microsoft Remote Desktop Client does handle rdp:// links now: Microsoft Remote Desktop uses the URI scheme rdp://query_string to store pre-configured attribute settings that are used when launching the client. The query strings represent a single or set of RDP attributes provided in the URL. The RDP attributes are ...
