    I have some macs on OS 9.2 and one on OS X. I want then to be able to connect into a PC running Windows 2000. I have tried VNC and have had too many problems with it. I am willing to pay whatever it takes to get a stable connection between them.

    Thanks

    You might be able to use Microsoft's free Remote Desktop Connection to achieve this (at least on Mac OS X). I don't know what versions of Windows RDC supports.

    Windows 2000 does not have the Remote Desktop host, only XP does. You can connect to 2000 Server w/ Terminal services, but not a regular 2000 desktop install.

    Thank you edesignuk for clearing that up! I guess RDC won't work at all then.

    I really like NetOp, I use it to remote on to all my PC's at home, it's much better than pcAnywhere. But it works on anything AFAIK.

    Thanks for the suggestions but neither will work on 9.2. Any other ideas

    Ah, sorry about that, I missed the bit about OS 9 in your first post.
