Xrdp Alternatives for Mac

    Xrdp is not available for Mac but there are plenty of alternatives that runs on macOS with similar functionality. The best Mac alternative is TeamViewer. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Chrome Remote Desktop or DWService. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 50 alternatives to Xrdp and many of them are available for Mac so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Mac alternatives to Xrdp are AnyDesk (Free Personal), NoMachine (Freemium), VNC Connect (Freemium) and X2Go (Free, Open Source).
