  • RWW on SBS 2008 via Mac?

    I have a client whose windows box recently died at home. They were using Remote Web Workplace to connect to their work PC occasionally. They have a new mac box at home as well and was wondering if they could connect to RWW with it.

    I believe RWW uses an Active X plugin on IE / Windows to enable you to remote in. From my research I don't believe there's a way to remote in on a Mac via RWW, but I thought I'd ask here just in case I'm missing something. Yes, I've already tried it from my Mac Mini and the connect to PC button doesn't show up.

    Yes, I'm aware we could set up a VPN and punch a hole in the network to do RDP, or use GoToAssist or the like

    If RWW doesn't work then try this. http://www.microsoft.com/mac/remote-desktop-client

          We've setup PPTP VPNs and then used RDP internally in this situation. We've even had to do that for a couple of directors at various places who utterly refuse to use IE.

          Anyway, unless things have changed recently, you can't use RWW without using IE and the ActiveX plugin.
