    Is it possible the Remote Desktop host has drive redirection disabled via a Group Policy?

    Thanks Al,

    I setup the group policy to allow drive redirection on the host. It still does not map the local drives on the remote PC. Do i also need to set this up on the remote PC since it is those drives that are being mapped?

    Hi Al,

    When i opened root console the first time using strat/run/mmc there was nothing in there. Now it is just "local computer policy". Is there anything else i need to add and configure? Terminal Services?

    Thanks,

    Tucker

    That's the right place unless your computer is a member of a domain,
    at which point you would need domain administrative priveleges...
