using rww from non Microsoft clients

we are using remote web workplace via an owa session (remote control of our server (sbs2008) via owa), and this is working just fine from any Microsoft based clients we use.

however, when we try and use owa from any other types of client, ie apple etc, we can log on to owa and access mail etc, but the options to remotely connect to our server and other workstations on our network are not present.

can we use non Microsoft clients to get a Remote Desktop connection using owa, as it seems strange the mail option is there but the Remote Desktop is not.

any advice welcomed

This is expected. The remote desktop feature requires active-x whih is a technology only available in Internet Explorer on Windows. You would actually find the option missing with chrome and Firefox on windows as well. It is a limitation of the RWW platform.
