Q

Pulling files to desktop from TS server

Is there a way for a connecting computer to pull files from the Terminal Services server to the connecting computer's desktop? The connecting computer needs to be able to move files back and forth between the server and itself. Thank you!
Sure -- but how you do it depends on the version of the display protocol you're using. If you're using ICA to connect to the terminal server, then the display protocol supports client drive mapping. If you're running Windows Server 2003 on the terminal server and the Remote Desktop Client on the client, you can enable drive mapping -- it's turned off by default. Those using a previous version of Windows Terminal Services can still get drive mapping with a third-party tool such as triCerat's Simplify Data Transfer.
