Printer, clipboard, and file redirection for clientless rdp along with fullscreen and multimonitor support.
The clientless VPN for RDP is extremely limited in its abilities.
The standard RDP client can allow the server on the inside of the network to redirect the printers of the client PC so print jobs can be sent to the client PC. It also allows for drives on the client PC to be made available to the server and seamless use of the clipboard. The Cisco variant (using internet explorer) allows for these with no issues and supports a full screen mode. While neither supports Multi monitor, a lot of power users want to use both screens. While we can just create a VPN tunnel via the Sophos VPN client, the clientless option: 1. does not allow any client applications direct access to the protected environment. 2. requires no software to be installed, this is useful when using a PC that may be owned by the employee and not a company PC that will be complying with policies for security and usage.
While the current iteration is nice in that it works in any browser, these limitations prevent me from recommending it.
we need that
Feature needed, thanks
Wouldn't creating drive mappings back to an unknown PC introduce a security risk? https://github.com/mdsecactivebreach/RDPInception
Why not use the SMB clientless module to access a locked down share on the server side and exchange files that way?

We actually prefer the fact that it is not possible so that users cannot copy data outside of the network. Just a thought.

This feature would be very useful for our clients. Please get this in your development pipeline ASAP.

Would it be possible to add the ability to access local resources on the computer remote controlling the PC via RDP? If not can we at least get a file transfer feature?
