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.

    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.
