Can you configure the remote desktop connection local resources settings using group policy (or some other method)

I need my users to make sure the box "Local Resources" is ticked by default when they make a remote desktop connection.

Is there a way to do this using group policy - or some other method?

sorry - I know about this and how to enable the computer I am connecting to.

It is the Remote Desktop "client" I am trying to configure.

I donot klnow how to do it from GP, however I can give you some info how to enable remote desktop. Right click on My Computer and goto propeties. Now select Remote Tab, Check the option "Allow users to connect to this computer" under Remote Desktop. Apply settings. That is all.

You can preconfigure a default.rdp file and copy it into a users profile when they login.

The default .rdp file is saved as a hidden file in your My Documents folder. To edit an .rdp file and change the connections settings it contains, right-click the file, and then click Edit.
