    Hi All,

    I require a remote access application which can be run from my machine a Macbook Pro running both MacOSX 10.6 and Linux Mint 8 (Does not matter which OS it runs from).
    I will be remotely accessing Windows based machines and need to know what would be the best application to do this?
    If anybody has any experience using remote access from Mac to a PC that would be greatly appreciated.
    Did I mention I would preferably like the software to be freeware.

    Cheers :D

    if you're just accessing windows machine using the default windows built in remote desktop, in linux just use Terminal Server Client (under the Internet menu, or the command tsclient). If the windows machine is running a vnc server, just use Remote Desktop Viewer (again under Internet, or the command vinagre).

    Mac, i dunno
