    I recently had a High Resolution IP Camera set up at a offsite location.

    The company that set it up gave me an IP addresss to log in to see the pictures streaming.

    The problem is the address only works with Interent Explorer.

    Is there anyway to emulate IE without installing windows, or run a similar program to view the image. I'm looking NOT to buy extra software.

    It does not work with Safari or Firefox. I also tried Firefox on a windows machine and it did not work.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    You could turn on the Develop menu in Safari and then change the User Agent to IE. See if that'll work.

    Thanks,
    I tried this, but to no luck, it displays the page but not the image.

    Thanks for your help though.

    Sounds like the site is using ActiveX, which can't be run on Mac. You'll need BootCamp or Parallels (or other virtual machine software) that can run Windows and IE. Or ask them to make the site better.
