I am using Windows Remote Desktop to connect to a server. I have enabled access to a local drive as per but I'm trying to figure out how to access the drive from the command prompt.

As per the link the shared drive shows up as drive_letter on terminal_server_client_name but using that in the command prompt doesn't work.

Does anyone know of a way I can access this file from command prompt or power shell so I can script some stuff out?

It should come as \\hostname\drive - but can't confirm now – Sathya Feb 15 '11 at 18:11
I tried that and it doesn't work which makes sense since that is actually a completely valid network address which I am not sharing. – ShaneC Feb 15 '11 at 18:28
