CoRD works on Mac OS X 10.5—10.8 and only with Microsoft's Remote Desktop Protocol, also known as Terminal Services. VNC and the built in OS X remote desktop server aren't supported by CoRD. We currently have no plans to add VNC support to CoRD.

Tiger Users

If you're running OS X 10.4 (Tiger), please read this wiki page.

Mavericks Users

We don't support Mavericks yet. Once we do, we'll announce it on homepage and release it via auto-update.

iOS Users

We don't have plans to port to iOS. There are a few ports in the App Store already, some free, some paid.
