IPad 2 and OWA light on SBS 2011

Hello experts,

A customer connects to OWA to view shared agenda's. This works fine in IE and Firefox. But now the customer wants to use their newly bought IPad's. Connecting via Safari works good, but OWA defaults to the light version. And the shared agenda's are not visible. Safari on Snowleopard only shows empty hidden agenda's. So I think it's the Safari engine.

Any one any solution?

Thanks in advance,

Try using https:// in the url

Though it could be as well that IE uses Active-x controls within OWA, but Safari/Snowleapard can't.

I suspect the use of active-x controls. But Firefox on Snowleopard works fine! As far as I can see the problem is with Safari.

Do not all browsers on IOS use the Safari-engine? I tried already tried Opera but same problem: no shared agenda's.

Nobody else? Karllangston's solution works only partly. It's possible to login now with the version of owa and the shared agenda's are visible. But due to display problems the screen can't be scrolled and so not all elements can be seen or used.

I know this has been closed but another browser that works well on Ithingys is Atomic. I use a mixture of the two when trying to web browse as very often Safari gets recognised as an Ithingy and the websites revert to a mobile version which is a tad irritating. I find I use Atomic more than Mercury now.
