Good Afternoon,

I am running Citrix Metaphrame presentation server 4.0 on a Windows 2003 Server.  how do you correctly publish a shared drive? This is what I want to accomplish
I want to be able to have the user open up the shared drives remotely and open the files within an ICA session. for example
userA is in a remote facility. he wants to open an excel sheet on his S drive which is located on a file server in the HQ building. the file is rather large and would take some time to open locally. how can userA accomplish this using citrix? I do not want to do remote desktoping it's very annoying and my users are not computer saavy.  

I also do not want to do redirection so that for example whenever someone opens up an excel document Citrix opens up excel and accesses the file. any help would be appreciated!

Here is how you would publish Windows Explorer (I know, it's IE but they really are the same):

"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE" c:\

Do not publish a copy of Explorer.exe as some may suggest, this practice can lead to instability of sessions.  

Now you should be asking how to lock down your server's drive letters:

and then perhaps how to lock down your server itself (this is a start):
