  • Hi,
    As WHS uses standard NTFS file system, there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to use Shared Folders and Remote Desktop from a Mac.
    A quick search suggests that there are a number of people already doing so.

    Good luck,

    Colin

  • to be a little more specific than Colin:

    WHS shares are standard SMB file shares. So an iMac should be able to see/manipulate files stored in them.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
