I have a share of Shared folders that I'm trying to hide from other users so that they only see the  folders they have rights to but currently they see everything, It seems ABE does not work with remote desktop, is this true? I've read this online, just wanted to verify it. I'm using a Window 2012 R2 server and users are connecting via remote desktop.

My setup is like this


and I have ABE enabled on SHARES.
