Accessing sharepoint via mac

Hi, I have a client who has had sharepoint 3.0 installed on a Virtual Private Server and she is having problems accessing it so that she can get to the files on their like word docs, excel docs etc.

I have confirmed that it definitely works by going via a windows 7 pro workstation.

Is there some particular way that you can access these files via a mac on the mac o/s snow leopard.

Thanks
Chris

What are the difficulties? AFA she should be able to connect to the site and libraries with Safari.

Hi choy1977,

Can you be more specific on what problems she is facing when she tries to access it? Also which browser your client is using?

I remember Mac user facing challenge when they are not using FQDN. is this the case here?
For example, Mac will have problem accessing if you try http://yoursite type of URL, if you use FQDN http://yoursite.yourdomain.com then a Mac doesn't face problem.

Let me know if this helps.

Regards,
Chinmay.
