Microsoft Desktop Client: Any chance of connecting to local drives?

P: n/a
Looks like they're doing something with printers because locally-installed
printers are available in the client view of the remote PC.

Can't make anything happen, however, with drives.

Would be nice to be able to send data back-and-forth between the client (where
I'm working) and the remote PC at the customer's site.

Right now, I'm using email.

If you connect via a VPN, you should be able to map local drives on
the server side, or, better yet, map the server drives on your local
machine.

This is yet another reason why I consider connecting to WTS across a
VPN superior to doing it without.
