RDP shared drive missing in XYPlorer - tsclient - works in Explorer & TotalCommander

Post by randfee » 29 Apr 2020 02:26

Hi,

I've looked for this, I've read through many of the threads dealing with RDP shared drives but I have not seen this issue:
  1. I use RDP to connect to a remote windows machine
  2. one of the local drives is shared with the remote machine
  3. I run the newest XYplorer version on the remote machine (everything working as expected)
  4. I can connect to \\tsclient\T using windows explorer just fine
  5. I can connect to \\tsclient\T using TotalCommander just fine (I'm never going back there though :roll: )
  6. I CAN NOT connect to the same address using XYplorer. XYplorer gives the error "could not find \\Tsclient\t Probably the server is currently not available" .... when it clearly is (see screenshot win-explorer of the left)
I've tried everything I could think of. Any ideas welcome!

Here's the screenshot from the remote machine.

I have tried it using different RDP client computers.... doesn't work for any of the machines I use to access (2xwin, 1xmac)

Weird. Try this script, what does it return?:

Code: Select all

exist "\\tsclient\t";

.... I was about to guess if this could be windows rights issue on the remote server for XYPlorer...
just out of interest ... what do you rekon the problem was instead?

I do some pre-checks for existence to fail more gracefully and save time (wasted on browsing a non-existent server in vain). However, for unknown reasons, this "\\tsclient" server fails the checks even if it exists. So my solution is: don't check this server. :biggrin: :party:

I must misunderstand.... you're not hardcoding an exception for this this specific server name!? :roll: :biggrin:
oh well, I guess it is specific to Ms RDP and thus not as rare as any ordinary servername.

I have nothing better. This is the only server name that makes such problems. :|

I tested the beta 20.90.0303 and it works fine!
no worries, as the RDP shared drive 'network' is always called tsclient this should be useful to many and remain an exception.

many thanks!
