If you need to connect to a Windows PC when using your Mac then you will need the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.1.1. You can download it here.
Here’s some info about the software:
Connect to Multiple PC’s
New Multiple Session Support gives Mac users simultaneous access to multiple Windows-based PCs or to a network server that hosts remote applications and files. Since it is a Universal application, Remote Desktop Connection Client 2 is compatible with the latest technologies on Windows and Mac platforms.
A more Mac-like experience
A redesigned user interface makes this application more customizable. Create your own keyboard shortcuts, and even access and change preferences during active sessions.
Print everything off of your Mac
Access and print from Windows applications to any printer that can be configured from your Mac.
Get fast updates and easy help
Microsoft Error Reporting Tool and Microsoft AutoUpdate are included so you can anonymously submit data on software related issues and get software updates as soon as they are available. Remote Desktop Connection Client 2 also takes advantage of the new Helpviewer and improved help topics for quick access to fresh online product help from within the application.
Reduce security breaches
Network Level Authentication (NLA) is a new authentication method in Windows that offers security enhancements that can help to protect the remote computer from hackers and malicious software. It completes user authentication before you establish a full Remote Desktop Connection. Please see Windows Help for more details on network level authentication.
