When I connect to a remote computer using RDP for Mac 2.0, I am unable to receive any sound on my mac. The file pays but no sound will carry through to the mac, even though I have checked 'play sound on mac only' in the preferences.

I am connecting to a 2008 server, if i connect via windows it works fine.

Sound redirection is default on clients running with XP. On clients running Win2k3 you have to enable it with group policy. My bet is (not sure) that it don't redirect the sound on Mac (by default).

The GPO setting can you find here:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Device and Resource Redirection\

Allow audio redirection
