remote web workplace with IE 11

It's been a while since I've used Remote Web Workplace to log in to our office's server (Windows SBS).

Now I have a new laptop and I need to use RWW a lot in the next few months as I'll be on the road.

However, when I try from the new laptop (running windows 7 Pro, IE 11), I am unable to login to the server desktop.

I can access RWW ok, and see the list of servers and clients, but when I pick our server, nothing happens in the browser....

NB the HTML layout is different, it looks faulty....

Does my SBS need some sort of update to allow a RWW from this newer setup?

Try adding the site to IE's Compatibility View list:

- Go to your RWW site in IE
- Click on Tools  in IE's menu bar (hit Alt on your keyboard) or click on the cog icon on the top right corner of IE
- Compatibility View settings
- Click on the Add button then Close
- Close out of IE
- Reopen IE and try the RWW site again

I think zorba111 has made a mistake in closing this question when the correct answer was provided. Can an admin please advise?

Sorry, its been a while since I used EE and the interface  has changed.
I thought the thing to do was close a question if the solution was given?
If this is not the new protocol, I can't even see how to undo the close.
Please guide me someone :-)
