Can anyone suggest alternative applications that provides remote desktop access from a Windows computer to a Mac?

My client is working with a customer and providing some remote receptionist services for them.. She needs to log on remotely to his MAC Computer to access his scheduling and appointment software. I'm a windows user and used to RDP (Remote Desktop). Any suggestions for a MAC alternative to connect to a MAC from a PC?

Teamviewer works across both platforms and is very simple and secure to setup and use.

LogMeIn is the easiest that I have ever seen. BTW, why not just use the Microsoft RDP connector for Mac (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=18140)?

I believe LogMeIn is a good software, RealVNC is another option.

i can add to Naeems's good proposals : Timbuktu (http://www.arrisi.com/products/product.asp?id=1027) and GoToMyPC (http://www.gotomypc.com/remote-access/).
Configure carefully these softwares in order to have a strong security : no default or autologin access, very good password, encryption if data is sensitive.

join.me and teamviewer are two I use. Teamviewer if you don't want someone to have to be sitting there to "let you in", they just authorize you and you can log in any time. Great for accessing your own computer while away.

With over a decade of experience in IT, including IT Support, TeamViewer is the winner so far compared to the rest of its' competitors simply because it's way faster & you got all the remote access features needed.
