How do I change permissions to allow drive mapping with Windows 2000 Terminal Services?

Expert Christa Anderson explains why it isn't possible to allow drive mapping with Windows 2000 Terminal Services.

I have Terminal Services 2000. I want to allow mapping to local drives. Under RDP-TCP properties, drive mapping is denied and shaded out, so changes cannot be made. How do I change permissions/security to allow drive mapping?

The reason why you can't get this to work is because Windows 2000 Terminal Services doesn't support client drive mapping. There's no way to change this, unfortunately. To get this capability you'll need to either use third-party software or upgrade to Windows Server 2003.
