Can I have clients connect to our terminal server using remote desktop web connection with a browser other than Internet Explorer.  I have some avid Firefox and Safari users.  Do I have to tell them they have to use IE to connect?

I am pretty sure that you have to use IE for this... There's an addon for Firefox called IE-tab which emulates an Internet Explorer session - that should work, but I haven't tried it myself.

TS requires an Activex client which is proprietary to Microsoft and will run only on the WIndows version of IE.

I was afraid that was the answer, but figured if anyone knew of another option it would be the "experts".  Thanks for a quick response.
