View Full Version : SAP Remote Access on A Mac

20th January 2009, 06:52 PM
Trying to convert a friend to mac but she needs to be able to do remote login to work and utilise SAP.
Would she need to install windows on a mac to do this or be able to do this by just installing internet explorer?

...IE isn't one of them on the intel macs.

There are Mac versions of most remote access schemes. There are OS X clients for SAP, and one of the best methods usually available is to use terminal services / RDS to view a system inside the firewall.

I have used these methods, as well as Windows in VMWare successfully to access SAP systems. The issue probably comes down to what your friend's IT department will support / allow for access to a production system :)

You can use Windows on a Mac and install the client/frontend GUI as you would normally or just use the OS X frontend (which I prefer).
