Hello Experts,

I have a RDS environment and when I am logged in I have access to my network drives via Windows Explorer.  When I try to upload a file within my browser and perform a browse of the local drives I immediately get a prompt to enter in credentials to locations that I have access (full rights).

I tried both Mozilla and IE and I have the same experience.

Can someone tell me how to configure the browsers to allow for the access?

There may be a GPO with a security option enabled that's restricting access to those drives. If your the admin, check your GPO settings. If not, contact your network admin.

Follow these instructions to set automatic login in IE

TG-TIS, I think it is a GPO, when I log in RDS via administrator I don't get the error.

BlueYonder, is this more for web site access, network drive access or both?  The instructions give an example for a web site, would this be the website they should be able to browse to upload a file?

Here is a document describing how to edit the default domain GPO.
