how to interface thin client internet explorer to a terminal session

hello expert,

My company uses IP to restrict Internet Access. We are now introducing Thin Clients and have thought of using Active Directory however because of the restricted amount of combinations of users it makes Active Directory cumbersome. So I have dedicated IP addresses to the clients that need to access the Internet.

Question:
How can I interface IE on the Thin to the Terminal session so the end-user can save files etc.?

I do not understand exactly what you are trying to achieve.
Do you have a terminal server? Is it part of AD? Are users logging in to run applications?
Is IE on the TS or you mean the local copy of IE on the thin client drive (I assume a flash drive with Windows XP Embedded on it)?
Please clarify exactly what you are trying to do.

The only way I see this working is to have the thin client map a drive the TS also maps. In this case users would save whatever they want to this drive letter (let's say, H:). This same H: would also be mapped on the TS under the user session and pointing to the same share on a file server.
This is the only way probably to do this.

When doing the map using the NET USE command all you need is to use /PERSISTENT:YES.
