How to access RDP from Mac OSX on BIG-IP APM 12.0

Hello Devcentral,


First of, there have been many "MAC OSX RDP" topics on here, I think I've read through all of them but I still cannot seem to get RDP working for my MAC OSX users. As with our Windows users I want them to be able to log onto the BIG-IP APM, click a link (Application Tunnel for MAC OSX of course) and then have them be able to log onto a Windows Server through RDP. I'm getting Java errors, "ClassNotFoundException" from the AppletTunnelProxy (seems to be something wrong with f5apptunnel.jar?).


I've tried JRE 1.8 and 1.7 on my test Mac Mini here (OSX 10.11.6 El Capitan) and using Safari as well as Firefox. I did get this to work on BIG-IP APM 11.6 if I recall correctly.


Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I have Java error logs/traces but didn't want to immediately spam this topic. If need be I can paste them into here.


Thanks in advance!
