Remote Desktop - Local Resources Not Working

Hi everyone -
I apologize if this has been addressed; I did a search, and couldn't find an answer that worked.

I am attempting to connect two computer via Remote Desktop. Both are running Windows 7 Professional, and they are not on the same network so this is going over the internet.

Although I have all of the appropriate boxes checked in the Remote Desktop's options, I am unable to get my local resources to become available on the remote machine. I cannot see the local drives, access the local printers, or share items with the clipboard.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to get these to work?

Thanks!
Ivan

Thanks for the tip, but I cannot use any extra software. The local machine is my office computer, and I do not have the rights to install programs.

How does local drive sharing in Remote Desktop work?
I was wondering how the local drive mapping in Remote Desktop works. I use it because it's very convenient, but I'm concerned about the privacy of it, i.e. that other people might see this drive as well. I need to be absolutely sure before I'm going to continue using a mapped drive.
