Reporting Services not working with Safari on Mac

Hello
we are facing a strange problem with our Reporting Services (2008). Everything works fine, on different platforms, except with Safari on Mac OSX (version 10.5.8, I don't know for other versions). We can reach the Reporting Services menu, but when we want to display a report, we get the error "An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host". The Mac is up to date, RDP is the latest version 2.1. The log is not very helpful as I see this exact error message.
Any hint would be greatly appreciated.

Looks like Safari supports only basic authentication. So we added RSWindowsBasic under <Authentication Types> in RSReportServer.config, and it's ok.

Looks like youre going to have to monitor network traffic for this one.

A shortcut would be to disable antivirus on the mac to see if this has any effect, the hypothesus being some avirus check "blesses" the network traffic and alters/signs it or something similar.

Can I help in any other way?
The sniffing part can be set up on the Reporting Services machine. Note: as good practice, do on a test system first. If thats not an option, I would recommend a backup of your system before you install this, and run on times with low impact if disaster occures.

Its not a beta status, these are a stabile Microsoft release, but in a production environment I would prefere to be as safe as possible.

No solution to this problem so far.
Workaround: use Firefox.

safari is a terrible browser for doing management tasks like these. Like you said above i use firefox for everything. It should not be this way but it is, safair is still far behind the curve on their web browser as far as i m concerned. Followed closely by IE 9 HAHA.
