Article Summary

The Microsoft RDP client is a small, versatile, tool used to connect a remote client to a Windows machine. The machine could be a stand-alone Windows machine or a fully configured and licensed Terminal Server that accepts multiple users at once - all working under their various usernames and profiles on the server.

In either configuration there are times when you need to share information between the local machine you are working on and the remotely connected server. The only thing you need to do is configure your RDP client correctly and your files will always be available to you on the remote system.

1. Open the Remote Desktop Connection application.

 2. Click Show Options button in the RDP application.

 3. Click Local Resources tab.

 4. If there isnt one already - place a tick on both Printers and Clipboard

5. Click the More button.
6.Select all the required local resources you would like to share with the remote system

 7. Click OK
 8. Browse back to the the General tab - connect to the remote system.
