Examples of software to use include Microsoft Remote Desktop, Jump Desktop, WYSE Pocket Cloud, 2X Client RDP and iRDP.

PPS Hosted Requirements - To check if your computer meets the requirements to run PPS Hosted, install this Application. If you cannot install this application, you will need to update your current version of OS X.

Emulation for Mac Users - PPS will run locally on any Mac provided that it can already run and meet the hardware requirements for Windows emulation software such as Parallels and Fusion, or can dual boot with a Windows operating system. Alternatively, PPS Hosted works directly from a Mac with no emulation software required and instead uses free Microsoft RDP software. PPS Express works with any Mac on OS X 10.9 or higher.
