Configure sound on RDP client

I have istalled windows 2003 in terminal server mode...  in test environment...  we are thinking uf upgrading to get sound.   which brings me to my question..

sound works on the server and when the client logs on the sound device is micrsoft RDP sound driver....  but it is muted and can not be unchecked.

are there some setup steps to make this work that I may have missed?

Thanks

start your Remote Desktop Connection CLient.
Open the Options with click on "Options" :)
select "Local Resources" Tab.
Here you can select, where the sound should go.
btw, you have 120 days from installation on.
after that, your terminal server will not function without a terminal services licence server.
you dont need TS, if 2 connections are enough for you. 2 are enabled in W2K3 per default.

anyone else have any more suggestions.  Sound is configured but when I view the sound device on the client I see RDP sound driver but it is not enable.   And I can not change it or select it as the sound device.

I think the reason for this is because "Audio mapping" is disabled on the RDP_Tcp Properties of the server. If you log into the server and do the following (Click on START-->All Programs-->Administrative Tools-->Terminal Services Configuration-->(The tscc window opens)--> Click on "Connections:-->Right Click "Properties" on RDP=Tcp-->Select the "Client Settings" tab-->remove the check next to "Audio Mapping" under "Disable the following:"-->Click "OK"

Then just log out and log back in and there should be sound. That's what fixed this issue for me! Hope that helps
