Sharing files between computers when using Remote Desktop

A little known feature of Remote Desktop is the ability to share files between your local computer and the system you are remotely logging into. This can be very useful if you are doing some of the work on your computer at home while using software that is only available on the computer at work. It also makes file transfer relatively simple.

Note that this only works if you are using a Remote Desktop program to connect. It will not work for the web-based interface (rdp.cecs.pdx.edu).

Documentation for various platforms can be found on the CAT website:
