Ah, of course not... I don't understand the technical side of this fully
(but I've tried as well as I can) but it seems to me that if I can get
access to mapped drive through ssh even though it's be reattaching a
screen session originally started locally from the desktop where the
drive was also mapped from then there should be some other ways to hack
around the problem too... I don't know how, but would it not seem to be
in someway possible to write cygwin and/or sshd to work so that the user
who logs in through sshd would have the same rights to mapped drive that
he does get when attaching a session running inside the screen?
It seems to me that there must be a way but I don't know if it would be
a really dirty hack or if a nicer solution would be possible... Would I
have more techincal knowledge about how these programs and OS work I
would gladly participate in planning, designing and coding it :)
