CoRD: Cocoa Remote Desktop Client

October 11, 2006

CoRD Project Home.

CoRD is a remote desktop client for Mac OS X ported from the UNIX program rdesktop. It is a Universal Binary, and allows you to connect to multiple servers concurrently. There are many features not yet implemented, but it is usable in it's current form.

It’s currently in version 0.2, and it shows; I noticed a few bugs when I played with it, and the interface is pretty unrefined. Still, I could definitely see myself using it once it’s a little more mature. rdesktop on Linux has always seemed very full featured and stable, and although the Microsoft RDC application isn’t exactly terrible, it’s long overdue for a serious update.
