[THIN] Re: Local Printers and Local Drives

Not sure I follow you . . in my experiance local drives can already be
connected via the Winxp RDP client. Of course you must be allowing the
option via user management settings on your domain to do it automatically,
but you can also map the drives via login script . . 

net use c: \\tsclient\c . . etc.

From the help files on the Winxp RDP client . . . 

To make local disk drives available in a session

In the Remote Desktop Connection window, click Options.

On the Local Resources tab, Under Local devices, click Disk drives. 
Click Connect. 
Note

To start Remote Desktop Connection, click Start, point to Programs, point to
Accessories, point to Communications, and then click Remote Desktop
Connection. 
Depending on the policies of your network, local drive mapping might be
disabled for some or all remote connections. 
When you click Connect, the information you enter in Options becomes the
default setting for all Remote Desktop connections and is saved in a file
called Default.rdp. To create connections with different or
connection-specific options, see Save your connection settings to a file.

... but it looks like we have to wait for .NET servers to use the local
drive mapping 
nethertheless, with WindowsXP it already works, and it is great for remote
administration or access to the local desktop

we aready tested it and currently use the new RDP 5.1 client under NT4 and
Windows2000.
