Is there ANY way to access Remote Web Workplace through Firefox?

Is there any way around the lack of ActiveX in Firefox which would allow me to connect to my office computer via RWW. I have tried a plug-in, but it was for Firefox 1.0.6 and it would not install. Is there a more current plug-in, or is it just impossible. Safari would be another option if there is a workaround with that. I have 2 Mac's that need to connect via RWW and have tried unsuccessfully to load IE on the Mac's, so I am looking for another direction. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Accepted Solution

    RDP via RWW requires at least Internet Explorer 6.

    You need to create a PPTP VPN between the Mac and the SBS machine, then RDP v2 directly into the required desktop.

    you could use I use this solution to access my office computers on the road and it works well, is encrypted and works in firefox on Mac, windows, & Linux.

    Not exactly what you are looking for but, it's secure and encrypted and doesn't require holes in a firewall to give you access.

    I split the points because MPECSInc was exactly correct and coredatarecovery suggested exactly the course of action I took. Thanks to both.
