I'm looking in to how to establish a remote desktop connection from Windows to Macs with the stipulation that we not use VNC so I'm wondering if a Windows client for ARD exists.

If not, does anyone have a suggestion for doing RDC from Windows to Mac. I can already do it going from Mac to Windows using MS's client or the open source CoRD, but I'm really hitting dead-ends trying to figure out how to go the other way.

Mac OS X (10.5.1)

    Nope.

    VNC would be your only option as that's what ARD uses for it's screen sharing.

    To continue what Templeton Peck said, most any VNC client will work. I personally prefer UltraVNC, and I use that to control 5 different Windows machines from my Mac. While you don't get all the advanced options like sharing clipboards, waking/shutting down, collecting reports etc... You still get full access to the remote Windows machine as you do when you connect to a Mac in ARD.
