Is there any function in mac os to do remote desktop same as Win OS?
Are you going Mac to Mac or Mac to PC?
If Mac to Mac, iChat allows desktop sharing.
If you're going between a Mac and a PC, TeamViewer is great.
If you need to get to a Windows Terminal Server, see http://www.microsoft.com/mac/products/remote-desktop/default.mspx
mac to my windows machine
Microsoft actually puts out a Remote Desktop App for Mac. I use it to manage my Windows 2003 server from my Mac Pro. Head over to Mactopia Microsofts Mac site and there's a link to the Remote Desktop app.
I've had nothing but problems using the remote desktop client going from macs to pcs. What I've found works best is either using logmein.com or installing VNC server onto the windows computer and then use the built in screen sharing in OS X. From the finder go to the Go menu, select Connect to server and then type in vnc:\\ipaddressofpc and it should connect and prompt you for a password.
It's hassles like this that make TeamViewer a much more attractive alternative. No complicated installations on either end, no firewall issues, no servers required. Just launch and connect. I use it constantly to provide remote support to clients and friends.
