Is it possible to copy files back and forth between computers through a Windows remote desktop connection without using additional software or having a Windows networking connection between the two systems?Is it possible to copy files between PCs through a Windows remote desktop connection without using additional software or having a Windows network connection between the two systems?The Windows XP Remote Desktop client provides the ability to copy files directly between systems through the remote desktop connection.To configure the connection for file transfer, open Remote Desktop Connection from the Communications section of the Accessories part of your Program menu in Windows XP and click the Options button.Click on the Local Resources tab in the Options dialog that opens up. In the lower portion of the Local Resources dialog you will see the Local Devices section with check boxes for disk drives, printers and serial ports. Checking the disk drives check box will make everything on all your local disk drives visible to the remote desktop connection, and you can copy and paste files between the two computer systems. Checking the printers check box will let you add local printers to the remote server during your remote desktop connection.If the server doesn't automatically recognize your printer, you can add the printer to the server manually as a local printer on a new TCP\/IP port configured to match your client computer IP address. If your IP address is the printer, connection will be made automatically on subsequent logons. I still use\u00a0Secure Shell (https:\/\/sshwindows.sourceforge.net\/) for file transfer with remote desktop connections, but I do like the printer redirection.
