There's also Royal TSX, which is similar to CoRD but much more powerful. It is a commercial app, but provides a shareware version that allows you to manage up to 1 document, 10 connections and 10 credentials for free.

One other thing, you'll have to "Enable access for assistive devices", I don't know why. So here's the AppleScript: tell application "System Preferences" reveal pane "com.apple.preferences.sharing" end tell tell application ...
Google Remote Desktop allows this. I accidentally discovered this last night while testing alternatives to LogMeIn. You'll need to install it via Chrome and sign in to your Google account while logged into OS X under the account that will be doing the remoting. ...
