Dear Programmer,

it will be very cool if vnc function like citrix or ms terminal server. There you can map the lokal drives on remote computer and/or remote drives on lokal computer.

Alex,

Drive mapping on windows is to integrated in the security and would have no use on java and a future unix client.

Citrix has full MS support, it just gonna be to difficult to do for us.

Dear Rudi De Vos,

the idea behind is, to map the Drivers on Windows with letters and on unix you can map the drives in a vnc directory. For Example:
Drive for VNC:
H:
Directorys:
h:\pc\a
h:\pc\c
h:\pc\d
h:\pc2\c
and so on

on the unix side you have no drive letter but a directory with the same drives under it.

So you can use every prorgamm for filetransfer and you have the couise between you favorite application.

Unix mapping
That is what a smb client does on unix (invers samba).
Only the code for it is bigger then the vnc code. Drive mapping
is complex. It is not only the file, but also the acls that NT put on them.

You are correct that it would be a nice addon, but it is just
to difficult to implement.
