Introducing guest blogger, Darren Coleman from Coleman Technologies. —

Can I use MLXChange from my Mac?

Many real estate professionals ask me if it is possible to access the MLXChange system on a Mac computer. You can, just by installing IDS (Information Delivery System). IDS is a server-based solution that enables Mac users to access programs meant for running on a Windows computer. IDS is not compatible with the iPhone or iPad, but you can access MLXChange through your Macintosh computer or these alternative Mac products:

  • iMac
  • MacBook Pro
  • MacBook Air
  • Mac Mini
  • MacBook

How to install IDS

Once you install IDS on your Mac, it will run just like any other program you have on your computer.

  1. Navigate to from the default browser on the Mac.
  2. Download and Install the IDS Links program.
  3. Launch the IDS icon to access the application.
  4. Enter in the Server Address “” and choose connect.
  5. You will be prompted for a User Name and Password; you can get this from F.V.R.E.B. Tech support.
