Can RDP "Start program on connect" run a program on a network share?

If I setup a network share on a live IP accessible to all as a "guest", would I be able to start a program on that share using the RDP "Start program on connect"?

Would RDP start a program with a path of \\IP\Calc.exe or whatever...

Asking the question cause I can't test it myself at the moment and was wondering if anybody knew.

Hi zattz,

Yes, that's what it's there for, but I have experienced some issues that \\IP does not work as well as \\fqdn

Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Depends on access controls/ permissions.

As long as nor user/PW is required, it should work.

 I hope this helps !

Yes, it works.
You could also try using a logon script that would run it if a user & pass is necessary
