Hey,

I'm useing XP pro, to connect to WinAS via terminal service..

I can not for the life of me get my local drives to show up on the remote
machine. I have selected to share local resources in the connection options.

When I cconnect it  comes up and warns me that they will be shared (I have not turned it off yet)

but they never show up...

any ideas?

Thanks for any help, this is driving me crazy, I hate to switch back to PCAnywhere just because of this..

Michael

Q. How can I get drive redirection to work on Windows 2000 Terminal Services?
 
A. There is a resource kit tool called Driveshare that requires software to be installed in addition to the client software. This tool from the resource kit isn't compatible with Windows XP Remote Desktop or the Terminal Server component of Windows Server 2003; additionally, this software depends on NETBIOS name resolution and hence doesn't work when connecting over the Internet or when there is no trust relationship between client and server. Our recommendation is to consider a third-party add-on or wait to upgrade to the Terminal Server component of Windows Server 2003, where it is supported natively.
