Windows 7: File sharing over remote desktop not working.

File sharing over remote desktop not working.

I have two laptops an ASUS with windows 7 ultimate and the other with windows 7 home premium. I also have a built desktop with windows server 2008 r2. I have enabled remote connection on the server and can log on with all of the user accounts. But I can not file share when I have remotely connected to the desktop using remote desktop connection. I have enabled printer and clipboard and then went in to more and selected the drive i wanted to share. I then logged on to remote desktop and the drive is not listed in computer management or in my computer. How can I fix this? Is it an issue in the windows server os that I need to do? Thank you for your help in advance!!!!

remote desktop connections allow you to 'control' a computer remotely--but--does not give you file sharing capabilities. You need to assign volumes on the server as 'shared' and then mount the 'volume(s)' on your laptops

The server and the two laptops are not on the same network connection. I put the shared path with the ip address in the map network drives and it couldnt find the host.

they NEED to be on the same network--you'll need to do some 'server' research to determine how to network all this together--I know very little about servers--except how to mount them when they're on the same network.

perhaps someone else can assist...
