Managing drive, printer, and device mappings for clients

Because client sessions can establish multiple data channels between client and server, users can map to local devices, such as drives and printers. By default, drive and printer mappings that a user sets in a client session are temporary and are not available the next time the user logs on to the server. However, using Terminal Services Configuration, you can specify that client mappings be restored when the user logs on. In addition, you can disable specific client devices so that a user cannot map the device. Users can map the following devices:

  • Drives (this option is supported for Remote Desktop Connection clients logging on to one of the Windows Server 2003 family operating systems and for Citrix ICA connections)

  • Windows printers

  • LPT ports

  • COM ports

  • Smart cards

  • Clipboard

  • Audio (this option is supported for Remote Desktop Connection clients logging on to one of the Windows Server 2003 family operating systems and for Citrix ICA connections)
