IE 8 troubleshoot in PlayOnLinux

I'm trying to access Remote Web Workplace running on Windows Small Business Server 2003 R2.
I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.
I installed IE 8 (this is the highest version PlayOnLinux provides)
I open URL , then I'm trying to connect to my PC in the office. When I select it ... IE hangs i.e. freezes. I don't have any error messages .. That's it. BTW based on my company direction I had to add this site to Trusted and use Compatibility view.

Well it looks to me that I'm kind of close to get to my PC but 'something' in IE preventing me from it.
Question: how would you suggest to troubleshoot PlayOnLinux/IE ?

You might want to contact Microsoft concerning the legalities of doing this. The EULA as mentioned in the comments here may not allow using IE 8 in Linux.
