Default Remote Desktop - a plugin for reverse drive-sharing ?

Hello All,

In my previous thread I asked for a posibility to reverse the default
drive-sharing (instead of client-drives shared with the remote host, the
remote host sharing its drives with the client).

While doing some googeling I stumbled over a page mentioning that RDP has a
plugin possibility. Now I'm wondering if someone knows if that mechanism
can be used to create the above sharing, and if maybe such a plugin already
exists.

I've also read about a possibility to extend the clipboards capabilities to
allow file-copying thru it, but saw little to how thats done.

And now for going technical:
I've found some MSDN documentation about the plugin objects (what they are
comprised of), but not enough to be able to progress that way. If anyone
has an example project including both the server as well as the client ends
of the plugins/communication it would be appriciated.

Regards,
Rudy Wieser

P.s.
For anyone wondering why I want to have the sharing reversed: I regard my
local computer as much more important than the remote one (if you're
wondering, both are under my control), and would like to set the whole thing
up with as little danger to my client computer as possible.

If you're referring to the PluginDlls property of IMsTscAdvancedSettings,
the plugin is a Virtual Channel client DLL.

Googling for (with quotes): "virtual channel client" "dll"
Will get you links that are mostly programming oriented. e.g.

http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/87875/User-Mode-Transport-of-the-Library-Via-Virtual-Cha

The Terminal Services ActiveX Client (mstscax.dll) seems to be the only
module that provides the plugin feature.

PS) CodeProject is a very good source for Windows API programming.

JJ,

IMsTscAdvancedSettings, the plugin is a Virtual Channel
client DLL.


I was not specifically referring to anything, as, apart from plugins being
possible, I had no idea what they would look like and what was needed for
it.

Googling for (with quotes): "virtual channel client"
"dll" Will get you links that are mostly programming
oriented. e.g.


Thanks for the keywords & link (have saved the page for further study). Up
until shortly most all my searches revolved around diffent forms of "Remote
Desktop Protocol" together with "plugin" and all that. Only later on I
stumbled over the above "virtual channel client" (function descriptions on
MSDN).

The Terminal Services ActiveX Client (mstscax.dll) seems to
be the only module that provides the plugin feature.


Than I got news for you: the COM approach is one of (as far as I currently
know) two methods. You can find a tutorial about the other, much simpler
one he

http://www.lnssoftware.ca/blog/?p=149 (Steve's Blog - Creating a Remote
Desktop Plugin Using Delphi)

I've been following that tutorial the last couple of days, and currently
have a basic virtual channel running. Now to figure out how to use it. :-)

Regards,
Rudy Wieser

P.s.
No idea how safe virtual channels are in regard to my origional problem
though. Need to do some more googeling for that.
