Connecting to a bach(elor) server from MacOS


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>

Open Press 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.
