Enjoy the freedom to work from anywhere. Jump Desktop is a remote desktop application that lets you securely connect to any computer in the world. Compatible with both RDP and VNC, Jump Desktop is secure, reliable and very easy to set up. Jump Desktop also supports our own, high performance, next generation remote desktop protocol called Fluid Remote Desktop.

* Easy setup and reliable:
Jump Desktop is very easy to configure; anyone can do it! Just visit: on your PC or Mac, click the ‘Automatic Setup’ link and follow step-by-step instructions. You’ll be up and running in no time.

* Secure:
Jump encrypts the connection between computers to ensure privacy and security. Automatic connections are always encrypted by default. Supports NLA, TLS/SSL encryption for RDP. SSH Tunnelling and SSL/TLS encryption for VNC. Fluid Remote Desktop uses DTLS for secure connections.

* Powerful Collaboration Features:
Collaborative screen sharing lets many users connect to the same desktop. Each user gets their own mouse cursor and can click and point without fighting over the same cursor. Great for editing documents with coworkers, tweaking designs with remote team members, creating presentations together, and teaching Grandma how to clean out her email.

Amazing! Try Server app for Mac remote access!

Best RDP app by far. I've used this to acces Windows via RDP for a while. I've struggled with decent remote access on the Mac, using VNC/TeamViewer (and others) and then found there is a server app Jump Desktop Connect - it uses the Jump Desktops own protocol 'fluid', it's far and away the best remote access experience for Mac's I've found, it's faster in my opinion than those and way less expensive. Not sure why this isn't better known. All apps are also well supported and updated. The download is hidden away on the companies website - seems a shame not to promote it better. Absolutely love it, thank you!

My go to choice for Remote sessions

Been using Jump for some considerable time now, and with the SSL feature makes this software indispensible for me. I have servers and computers to access daily, for support and for personal use. Jump is very quick, and can sync new connections to my laptop and phone... perfect!

Does exactly what it says and shares info aross iCloud!

Best RDP software I have used for the MAC beats the MS version hands down many times!
Plus like all good MAC apps it stores your servers in icloud so you have them on all devices.
Really cannot rate this highly enough “this is the software you’re looking for” :-)
