How do I configure Group Policy to apply folder redirection settings to users who access the local network remotely?

A. By default, Windows 2000 doesn't apply Group Policy folder redirection settings to users on slow network connections. To modify this behavior, perform the following steps:

  1. Start Group Policy Editor (GPE), and load the policy in question (you can also right-click the Active Directory--AD--container that the policy applies to, select Properties, select the Group Policy tab, and click Edit).
  2. Navigate to Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, Group Policy.
  3. Double-click "Folder Redirection policy processing."
  4. Select Enabled.
  5. Select the "Allow processing across a slow network connection" check box. (You can also double-click "Group Policy slow link detection" to set what constitutes a slow link.)

  9. Close GPE.
