Access files on locked down remote desktop sessions.
Posted on 2011-04-20
We have a standalone Windows 2003 Terminal Server. When the users login all the programs they need are executed and they have no access to the desktop. We have it setup so if they try to access the C: drive they are logged off immediately. This is accomplished by placing a logoff exe in the startup menu.
The problem is that they now need access to word,excel, and pdf documents that are in a share that was created locally, and when windows explorer is accessed they are logged off.
These are local accounts and installing active directory so I can apply a GPO is out of the question.
Sorry for any confusion with my description, I will be happy to answer any questions about it.
