    Hi, I just got a new job and the terminal server requires ActiveX. Is there a substitute or some kind of alternative that I can use or am I just SOL? Not sure what to do.

    Thanks in Advance!

    I just got a new MBP and refuse to run bootcamp/windows on this one as I did on my old one. It slowed my computer down a ton and I think it may have affected my internet connection, because when I uninstalled it, my computer was much faster. Are there no other options?

    There are no "native" options for ActiveX in OS X.

    There is IE4OSX... but it's old. It's a wine port of IE6. Hopefully it'll do the job.

    Hang on, the terminal server requires ActiveX? Are you using a Web page that contains an embedded ActiveX RDP client? Can you use the official client instead?

    Why are you using the web to access TS? Why don't you use RDP instead?

    Exactly and there are lots of RDP clients for OSX. MS makes one and Cord is pretty nice.
