Connecting Macintosh OS X 10.3 and Higher Clients to a Windows Small Business Server 2003 Network

Although you can access Remote Web Workplace by using Safari or Netscape, it is recommended that you use Internet Explorer 5 for Mac, in order to help secure your network.

I believe those articles are not directed to RWW DooDah.
MAC's cannot connect to RWW because they do not support Active-X.
You can download the Remote Desktop Client for MACs and connect that way but then you have to configure port forwarding and use terminal services (remote Desktop) to connect to a specific PC or server.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

Should you want to configure Remote Desktop (less secure than RWW) the MAC client can be downloaded from the following link:

Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0.1

I heard that Microsoft was going to discontinue support of IE for MAC, hopefully you have IE for MAC install sitting somewhere already.  ( I have kept my browser install files dating back to Netscape in the 90's as the downloads for "OLD" versions "ALWAYS" disappear when then next version is released )

We're talking 2003, { 7-years ago if you can believe it :o)  
You might ask if anyone has IE for Mac or knows where it can still be found.

I think you will find there is no current way to use RWW with a MAC..
Does the MAC user need to connect to more than one PC or server?

I do have one last solution, load the Mac with Virtual SW and run XP with IE just for that reason.
