THAT is still the question.

That is the one I want !!!!

I can get the TS client to create a file using the name from it with a
simple batch file on login to the TS session, but as yet I have been
unable to access the information from the browser. Javascript is not
allowed access to it because it is a 'security risk'.

I am wasting hours of my time trying to solve a very simple problem just
because a customer believed their network provider that Terminal Server
is totally compatible with all software ;)

All I need is ANY browser running on the thin clients and I remove the
bottleneck they are currently seeing on the TS server anyway and all my
existing software runs, but no I've got to get it working through TS and
show them that it is too slow :)

THEN perhaps they will fix the real problem - Terminal Server ;)
