The audio redirection feature does not work when you use Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0 to make a terminal server session to a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition or Windows Vista x64 Edition
You use Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac 2.0 to make a terminal server session to a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 x64 Edition or Windows Vista x64 Edition.
You enable the audio redirection feature on both the server-side computer and the client-side computer.
In this scenario, the audio redirection feature does not work after a terminal server session is made. If you use the same Macintosh client to connect a terminal server that is running Windows Server 2008 x86 Edition, the audio redirection feature works.
Audio redirection feature for the Macintosh clients is not enabled on the x64 editions of Windows Server 2008 or of Windows Vista.
