Mac and Tsweb page

By amandae ·
Attempting to connect to our Terminal Server via our Tsweb page from a MAC. Can connect fine from a pc. The MAC page produces USERNAME and DOMAIN text fields which are not present on the pc Tsweb page. The CONNECT button is greyed out, even when all text fields have been completed.

Why is this? Is there a specific setting on a MAC that needs setting or amending?

Maybe its because TSweb uses an ActiveX download to connect which maybe PC only.**806.aspx

Try the RDP client for MacOS X instead:

TS Web Access

by IrishMike In reply to Mac and Tsweb page

The reason for the asking of username and password on a mac is because on a PC using IE you can add the site as an intranet and you can set the security settings in IE to use autologin for intranet sites

I am having the same with TS Webb Access on Server 2008 as I cannot get Firefox or Mac users to connect, though it is possible....but I have NO idea how!

Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0.1

by omar1299 In reply to Mac and Tsweb page

Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0.1 lets you connect from your Macintosh computer to a Windows-based computer or to multiple Windows-based computers at the same time. After you have connected, you can work with applications and files on the Windows-based computer.

Remote Desktop Connection Client 1.0.3 for Mac provides improved stability when you minimize the client window and when you copy and paste data from the client window to Macintosh applications. Stability is also improved for users of Mac OS X 10.3 and later, and when Remote Desktop Connection Client is used on Macintosh computers with PowerPC G5 processors.
