The best part about this app is its ease of managing multiple RDP sessions in the tray.

Although it's much better than Microsoft's RDP on Mac, there are a couple of annoying issues: (1.) CoRD can't do higher security RDP with NLA -- this might render the app useless for you depending on how your network is configured; (2.) You cannot copy and paste between Mac OS and your RDP session when CoRD is running in full-screen mode. The work-around for this is to CMD + Enter CoRD to exit full-screen mode when you need to get something onto the Mac clipboard.

Check out Royal TSX for an alternative that supports NLA!

Best RDP-Software for Macs. I use it every day to connect to over 70 Windows-Server.
As olderman said: grouping machines would be very helpful if you have many entries in the bookmark tray.

A great little piece of software. It has one major flaw though — triggers the discrete graphics. It doesn't have to but it does. So only 3 stars.

Great app!
I wish it has a feature to arrange servers by group. This would make it the greatest app :)

Great App. Doesn't crash like the RDP client from Microsoft.

I like this app BUT it seems to stall out if I am not on it consistantly.

For instance, if I click off of it to my desktop (I have a Mac), it will stall out and I have to close and reopen it.

Any way around this. Can it stay open and functional even if I am not using it at that moment?

Thanks!

This is great app. I use it nearly every work day to get pesky little Windows-specific things done, and CoRD works perfectly for me. Never had a problem. Well done.

Brilliant software, the best RD app bar none.
Just one issue, I can't get the audio from my PC's integrated sound card to exit via its normal physical output.
When using cord, the RD settings seem to take precedent.
Any ideas ?

Actually, it's worse.
It won't even foward audio to the Mac.

Shame, that developers abandoned Tiger :(. We use old Macs with Mac OS X Tiger as terminal stations for Windows, and i wanted to switch from RDC to some other product :(.

0.5.5 runs fine in Leopard, but 0.5.6 doesn't; instead it fails with "dyld: unknown required load command 0x80000022 Trace/BPT trap".

CoRD doesn't seem to forward disks anymore. I use it very infrequently so I don't know when this started, but I no longer see my shares in the PC I'm controlling with CoRD. They show up fine using RDC.

I'm on a MacPro, 10.6.2.

in 0.5.1 there was a small setting changed to allow people to enable/disable individual paths/disks without removing them. Simply go into the Forwarding prefs and check/uncheck the Enabled box and try again. The check in the code doesn't handle that property properly. There is a fix in place for 0.5.2. We're hoping to roll that out as soon as our current crop of cursor issues are fixed.

CoRD is awesome. I literally use it 12+ hrs per day and manage alot of different connections seamlessly.

However, one thing that has annoyed me from the start is I lose my apple key select all, copy and paste. Anytime I hit the apple key it opens up the windows start menu. If I disable it I get nothing.

Having to right click copy/paste takes so much more time than apple key a/c/v, etc

Any way to get this functionality?

Hi,

Thanks for CoRD.

It's awesome!

Please add options for turn off mapping COMMAND key to WINDOWS key.

I hate "always popup" Windows menu.

Thanks!

If you're running one of the 0.5 pre-releases and are comfortable with Terminal, try this:

defaults write net.sf.cord SendWindowsKey 0

HTH and cheers.
