Hi, I'm trying to configure the parameters of the RDP plugin.

I can see in the SSL_VPN_DeplymentGuide these notes:

The parameters available for the ActiveX client used by Microsoft Internet Explorer include:
•RedirectDrives—Set to true to map remote drives locally.
•RedirectPrinters—Set to true to map remote printers locally.
•FullScreen— Set to true to start in FullScreen mode.
•force_java—Set to yes to force the Java client.

But, it doesn't work for me redirectdrives and redirectprinters. Some help?

I'm setting the bookmark in this way: rdp://server/?redirectdrives=true

I just had the same problem.

Was not sure if my Win7 x64 was the problem og what to do.

Figured out that your site should be added to "Trusted Sites" under security.

When I did that i could ude the following connection string:


All my local drives including network shares became available.

I supost you can do the same tning with printers. Have to play with that soon

So on the client, where you have the local printer, you add the ip address (or the FQDN) to Trusted sites? That's it? I can NEVER get that to work with the redirect printers switch, or even using 3rd-party software like Tricerat.  I will try it and if it works I will send you some serious KUDOS.   I wil throw in some mojo and good karma too!
