Remote Web Access

I am typing out this latest blog on my new Lenovo MIIX 2-8, which is running the new Windows 8.1 OS. So far this thing feels solid. I just had to mention some of the fun I've had the last two days with Internet Explorer 10 and 11, and I figured that I would break in the new tablet as well.



One clients has their users use Remote Sites so that they can easily access services in other facilities. I like Remote Sites because each user is presented with a customized view based on their user permissions within that domain. One of the things I noticed is that it does not play well with IE10 or 11.

I know that IE10 and 11 are still in development, but I am finding that it doesn't work with some of the business resources I am use to. This is the primary reason why many businesses do not deploy IE 10 or IE 11. The obvious solution is to downgrade to IE 9 and call it a day, but I wanted to document my findings and figure out what else does the new IE not work with.

Remote Web Access is an awesome tool that places the resources that a user has access to on one page. RWA runs on the standard Microsoft infrastructure like IIS and Active Directory. The site can be configured to display shared files, workstations and servers, internal websites, emails and more.

To connect to remote desktop in to a system you have permission to access, just select the desired system. When everything works correctly, you will see a pop up window that will ask you to connect similar to the window to the left. If everything works out correctly, you will get the typical RDP connection window.






With IE10 or IE11 I received this window. This same error appeared on two different systems, one with IE10 and the other with IE11. After downgrading them to IE9, the problem went away. Stay tuned for steps on how to downgrade to IE9.
