I just got a new MacBook Pro.

I have never owned a Windows computer before, but this thing is running Lion and Windows 7, via Boot Camp and Parallels.

I need to be able to connect to a Windows 2000 server at work, via Remote Access.

If I boot into Windows under Boot Camp, I am able to use Microsoft Remote Access, to connect to the server.

Loading my Boot Camp partition under Parallels, I am not able to connect the same way.

Ideally, I would just connect using Apple Remote Desktop, and skip Windows altogether, but that doesn't connect either.

Can anyone give some guidance here please?

Thanks.

In what way does that fail?

B
It's the oddest thing... I just tried it, in order to post the error here, and it inexplicably works now!

Weird...

It would still be better if I could get the Mac client working, but at least I don't have to keep rebooting now!

I would just like to point out that I am now using Mac OS X to access Windows 7 under virtualization, to remotely access a Windows 2000 server!

That blows my mind a little bit. :)

I downloaded Remote Desktop for Mac.

About 80% of the time it crashes when I try to connect.

The other 20% of the time I get a black screen.

I don't know what's going on. This is a brand new system, so it's hard to imagine that there's a conflict.

CoRD is another excellent, free RDP client. It's a little more customizable and feature-rich than the Microsoft client, in my opinion.

Awesome! This works very well! Thanks for the tip!
