When you use Windows 2000 Terminal Services with a Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) client computer, client-side drive redirection is not available by default.
To use client-side drive redirection, use one of the following methods:
If a session originates from one client computer, when the session is disconnected, and then reconnected from a different computer, redirection does not take place in the new session.
If different users log on to the Terminal Services server from the same workstation, place the net use command listed in step three (without the /persistent:yes switch) in a logon script.
A Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection must be initiated before you attempt drive redirection. Drive redirection does not work through an Internet connection.
