problem mapping local drives in remote desktop session

I have an issue with a new dev machine I have.
It is running Windows 2003 Server R2.

when I connect fromt his machine to another one running windows 2003 i do
not get my C drive connected.

On the clinet machine I also have a CD ROM drive that does get mapped
through \\tsclient\D path.

when I try to open \\tsclient\C\ I get an erro mesage that says:
"
\\tsclient\C is not accessible. You migh not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions.

Attempt to access invalid address
"


has anyone know what cases this and how to deal with it.

the computer that is actinc as clinet here is brand new instalaltion of
windows 2003 R2 with microsoft development tools on it. The only security
change I made was to uninstall enhansed IE security.

Thanks in advance.
Ivan

Re: problem mapping local drives in remote desktop session

Have shared the C? posting the result of net share command on the local server may help.

Re: problem mapping local drives in remote desktop session

Hey Ivan,

Two things:
If your trying to access your C drive like a network share from the server, ensure that the C drive is shared with the correct permissions. If you have administrative rights you can use \\tsclient\c$ without any setting up on your end.

If your trying to just have remote acess to the HDs of your local machine while being remoted into the server then do the following. Open up your Remote Desktop Connection and choose Options. Under Local Resources choose Disk Drives.
This will now add your local drives to your remote computer as mapped drives. Visit My Computer to use them.

Hope this helps,
