    Is it possible for me to publish Apple Mac (iMac; High Sierra) in a similar way that Windows Remote PCs are published, in Parallels RAS? We have users working remotley but some of them are requesting access to the institutional Macs, rather than Windows machines.

    Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    @InfrastructureA RAS does not support this natively. However you can try either:
    1. Using Parallels Access. This is the easiest solution by far. Parallels Access provides access to both desktop and specific applications. While it is intended mainly for mobile users, there is a browser-based client which can be used on desktops too. More info and links to the trial are available here.
    2. Using agent-less "Remote PCs": Since RAS clients use RDP as the underlying remoting protocol, you will have to install some kind of RDP server on the Macs. Once you have that, it should be possible to add these devices as agent-less "Remote PCs" to allow publishing a desktop from them. This solution has several drawbacks, first and foremost, it is not a supported configuration and secondly, the configuration options are very limited (no app publishing, for instance).
