Step 2: Verify that the Axis Security RDP Policy Allows File Transfers

This section describes how to verify that the RDP security profile that is applied to the RDP application allows file transfers. This is useful for troubleshooting when your users cannot transfer files.

Prerequisites

  • Complete the following steps before you begin.
  • Verify that the RDP client is configured for drive redirection.

The following procedure shows you through the process of:

  1. Identifying the policy rule that is being applied to the user’s session.
  2. Using the rule to identify which RDP profile is being applied to the user’s session.
  3. Verifying that the File Transfer option has been enabled in this profile.
  4. Enabling file transfers in the RDP profile when the File Transfer option is disabled.

To check if the RDP profile that is being applied allows file transfers:

  • Step 1: Identify the matching policy rule that is associated with the user
  • Step 2: Identify the RDP profile is used in that rule
  • Step 3: Verify that the RDP profile that is used in that rule has transfer files enabled

Step 1: Identify the matching policy rule that is associated with the user

To identify the matching policy rule that is associated with the user:
In the Management Console, go to the Insights > Users screen and look for your session.

Step 2: Identify the RDP profile that is used in that rule

Now that you found the match rule that is associated with the user, use the rule to identify which RDP profile is being applied to the user’s session by checking which RDP profile is selected in that rule’s Profiles section.

To identity the RDP profile that is used in the rule:

  1. Go to the Policy > Rules screen.
  2. In the Filter field, search for the matched rule name, in this example, MyRule-Any, to see which RDP profile is attached to it.

Verify that the RDP profile that is used in that rule has transfer files enabled by selecting the edit icon associated with the rule.

Step 3: Verify that the RDP profile that is used in that rule has transfer files enabled

Now that you have identified which RDP profile is applied to the user, verify that this profile has transfer files enabled.

To verify that the RDP profile associated with the user has file transfer permissions enabled:

  1. Go to the Policy > Security Profiles > RDP screen.
  2. Locate the associated RDP profile. In this example, we are verifying the RDP profile, titled, RDP - File Transfer Enabled, allows file transfers.
