Mac RDC Client able to use 2008 TS Gateway??


  • Hi all....


    Anyone got any idea when to expect an RDC client for a Mac that supports the cool new features in TS2008 - specifically support for TS Gateway??

  • RDC 2 for Mac does NOT Support TS Gateway. You can see the list of features that are supported by the latest version here:

    You can also provide feedback to the team about features you would like to see supported in future versions.

  • Wow. That makes the "new" RDC client for the Mac an awful lot like the old client. If you guys release a new RDC client that doesn't support all of the features of your new RDP server it kind of defeats the purpose of releasing anything at all....don't you think??

  • I would like to see RDP TS support for MAC's as well. We see this very usefull in business that we see today. I have customer's who are interested in this feature and I hope it's coming soon.

  • Cast your vote for TS/RD Gateway support in the comments of the thread (below) on the Terminal Services Team blog.  Maybe if they get enough requests, we might get a response.

  • Ayesha,

    I must tell you that we've had a lot of requests from clients for support for TS RemoteApps using the Mac RDP client. It would behoove Microsoft to integrate Macs better!

  • Agreed.  We've got a lot of requests from customers looking to use Macs as RemoteApp clients.

    We've got schools we work with that would love to use RemoteApp to simplify deployments - this is a great way to do it!

  • Why was not TS/RD Gateway support added to the new client that was released 24th of October this year?

    Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.0

    Its been more then 2 years since TS Gateway was released, and still not no client that support TS gateway for mac.

    Even Ipad and Iphone have clients that supports TS gateway, so I dont think its so hard to add that feature.

  • I agree. How hard can it possibly be to add this feature? It would seem that the iPod and iPad apps can be done. So, yes... why can't Microsoft do it?

  • The iTap RDP app that enables iOS devices (iPads, iPhones) to use TS Gateway/RDS Gateway was written/created by an industrious 3rd party, not Apple or MS.  Not sure why the same app couldn't be re-compiled for MacOS.......

  • I think Apple should be more aware that people love to have Apple computers, but offices often use Windows-based systems.
    It would be possible to deploy Apple computers (iBooks) to workplaces when TS Gateway will be fully supported.

    When a user leaves the building, it has to be possible to be able to login again.

  • Hi!

    I'm one of the iTap mobile team and just wanted to note, that iTap mobile RDP is now also available for Mac OS X (including support for RemoteFX and TS Gateway). It has similar feature set to the iOS and Android clients and you can read more about it here:

  • That's AWESOME!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  I will forward this out to my Mac users.  In fact, one of them was just asking about this yesterday.

  • Yes very awsome!  I've been watching a rival who released a very incomplete client called Hot-E-V and an open source project called FreeRDP but you got out of the gate first with a complete solution.  Thanks!

  • This is an old post, but Microsoft just released a new Mac client that supports RDP Gateways! Woohoo!
