I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't use RWA from a Mac directly because RWA requires ActiveX which is a proprietary MS plug-in which works only with Internet Explorer for Windows. (For the same reason, even on a PC, you can't use RWA with Firefox)

thanks I know this, I'm looking for other remote options

The most common solution is to use Windows on the Mac with VM solution such as Parallels, VMWare Fusion or Oracle VirtualBox .. you can install a fully functional Windows 7 or 8 system and use any windows-only apps such as Internet Explorer.
