Hi Mike,

I ran these commands:

ln -s /usr/local/lib/freerdp/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/freerdp
ln -s /usr/local/lib/freerdp/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/freerdp
ln -s /usr/local/lib/freerdp/ /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/freerdp

And restarted guad

Now G: drive appears on Client.

Many thanks, Adrian

You should *never* set permissions to 777.

The drive directory needs only be readable/writable by the user that the guacd service runs
as. Making any directory world-writable, let alone Guacamole's drive directory, is dangerous.
If any account on your server is compromised, even one with little to no privileges, your
users' files will be exposed.

There is no need to restart anything in this case. You only need to restart things after upgrading
Guacamole itself to a new version, and then only guacd and Tomcat need to be restarted, not
the entire server.

Do you see any relevant messages from guacd in syslog?

Is drive redirection allowed according to the group policies of the RDP server in question?
