INFORMATION FOR APPLE MAC USERS ONLY
NOTE: For whatever reason, in order to access some of the Navy CAC-enabled sites, you must CANCEL when it first asks for your PIN. After canceling, you can then choose your certificate, and it will give you a second opportunity to enter your PIN. At this point, the PIN must be entered.
Information for NAVY personnel using Apple Computers: NROWS will not continue to the login page if it identifies your browser as non-compatible. This is easily fixed by having Safari report it "is" IE. Go to Safari->Preferences ->Advanced and ensure the "Show develop menu" check box is ticked. Now when you open NROWS and it gives the browser error, go to the Develop menu in the menu bar and select User Agent->Internet Explorer (any version 6.0 or greater) The "Unsupported" page will refresh, just hit the back button and voila, you're at the login screen. This works from the Navy Reserve Web site, or directly to the URL: https://nrows.sscno.nmci.navy.mil/nrows/
You can try this as well for NROWS, but, you'll need Google Chrome:
NROWS sets some narrow parameters when it comes to User Agent
identification. Thursby software has figured this out. You'll need
to build an AppleScript and use Google Chrome as your browser:
