    We have a Terminal Server at work that I need to log into. From my desktop I use Windows 7 Remote Desktop Connection.

    Is there a Playbook app to do this? I tried Splashtop and it seems to be just a remote control app like gotmypc.com.

    TIA - R.

    I am right there with you. I know there are RDC apps for android so I am hoping that we'll have access to some of those when os 2.0 is released. Right now, VNC is pretty much it.

    As of date, if you have the OS2 beta, you can sideload Android's Remote RDP enterprise that works perfectly with simple RDP protocol. I use it quite often and it's pretty efficient. Warning: so far it does not work with bridge: you need a wifi access point.

    I've been trying (AppWorld) Splashtop Remote Desktop, but I must admit that I preffered -by far - Remote RDP, as :
    1/ The screen resolution/management seems to me far better
    2/ Splashtop requires that (as VNC and numerous others) you install a client on your PC.

    Of course, when OS 2.0 becomes official, I don't know if Remote RDP will come in app World and how it will perform then ... but I'm pretty confident !

    Hope it helps.

    I use RDP Enterprise from my PB running the OS2 beta as a sideloaded android app as well.

    Superfly is correct, you can't run it over bridge, however I find you can connect outside of WIFI if you tether your phone. Works perfectly in this configuration.

    However, it is no longer listed as a .bar file on the meta spreadsheet... only as a paid app. I really hope it makes the Android app list for OS2... I use it frequently.
