    Using Remote Desktop 2.0 on a Mac Pro to get into an XP box on my network. About every twentieth attempt it will blue screen the XP box. In order to get around it I must reboot the XP machine, which, is pointless because I am trying to remote into it and I am not in front of it. Any ideas? :confused:

    Can a windows machine RDC to that XP box? Or does that cause a blue screen as well? I ask because it sounds more like a problem with the XP box than the Mac.

    Yes, I can RDP to the XP machine from an XP machine without a problem. I can also RDP from the MAC to the XP machine using RDC using version 1.0 without an issue. On the XP machine: this is the second machine I replaced so on RDC 2.0 it has blue screened two different XP machines.

    Have you tried re-downloading RDC from MS? Maybe there is something corrupt in the file?
