NOTE: If the applet does not install, double check your JAVA settings. Go to Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities and launch JAVA Preferences. Set your settings to the following, making sure to drag the 32-bit JAVA to the top of the list.

NOTE 2: Apple's last update for JAVA for Lion and Mountain Lion prevents INB and VPN users from launching their pages. At the login screens, you will see either "Missing Plugin" or a failure to launch an Applet. To fix this, you will need to be an administrator of the mac and use the application Terminal located in Macintosh HD > Applications > Utilities folder.

To fix, close all your web browsers and type in the following commands in Terminal:

1) Remove the the existing symbolic link:
sudo rm /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin

2) Create a new symbolic link:
sudo ln -s /System/Library/Java/Support/Deploy.bundle/Contents/Resources/JavaPlugin2_NPAPI.plugin /Library/Internet\ Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin

Open the web browser and proceed to login.
