The best way to open a graphics-based RDP session from MacOS is to use
Microsoft Remote Desktop (download here).
For security reasons you first have to open an SSH session to the bachelor server of choice and add the option
-L to allow the xrdp protocol communication to pass through ssh, for example:
ssh -L 12345:localhost:3389 -l <username> bach1.strw.leidenuniv.nl
Add PC in the “+”-menu. Enter the server address in
PC name: and press
Add. Double-click on the new PC, enter your credentials and press
Continue when complaining about about the certificate.
