Remote Desktop WEB CONNECTION and Drive Redirection
Posted on 2003-03-04
When I use Remote Desktop with "Drive Redirection" turned on (options > Local Resources > Local Devices), I can see all the drives of the client computer. No problem here.
However, if I connection thru' Remote Desktop WEB CONNECTION I can't see the drives of the client computer. All I can see are the drives of the host computer. According to MS and many others "Drive Redirection" is ENabled by default for Remote Desktop WEB CONNECTION. So how come I can't see the local drives on the client computer?
According to one article I've found I should able to configure the Web Connection dialog box just as I would with the "regular" Remote Desktop Connection dialog box. But the "Options" tab there only hide/unhide the "Shutdown" button and lacks all the other options.
"Audio Redirection" and Clipboard Redirection" still work by default though.
I did find one page on the web which, IN CONTRAST TO WHAT MS SAYS, states that "Drive Redirection" is not supported via Remote Desktop WEB CONNECTION.
So who is right and what's the deal?
